We finally feel like the growing movement for nuclear abolition. Last year, this remark Nasari Obama, echoing in our world do not have this. 貰Wa Nobel Peace Prize is also a voice that was second this year, I think I made great progress.
But still, we are receiving a great tragedy for the Japanese mission is not that it needs nuclear power to appeal anyway. (Omitted) from my father too, this movement Preceded by (WCRP) to expand, and Yattekimashi from parent to child, and ever since, now that our place a little over 90, this movement means to expand significantly to our friends around the world and sincerely hope to Dearimasu to become such a big movement.
Now, if you ask, this movement (ARMS DOWN! Campaign) that we give to those in need omitted for the war by our great support for this very worthy purpose. Out in the world that we are of course Japan should take the lead. WCRP particular bon appétit Shimashi will be a greeting and ask that you working with people of great momentum.

(Excerpts from the words provided at the hospital)


Originally a life which is all we are given. Suicidal behavior, such as damage to your own life, but of course it is bad, and hurt other people’s life, that is that even though we would not now true, and the escalating nuclear arms .
From idealism that is to say just how much Obama, it’s a reality, not holding hands We should pay people worldwide. Not only in Japan we’ll have that connect you to get countries around the world. And in one respect. “Peace,” to seek. I like that the time to climb the mountain in the Alps ‥ ‥, but are a vicious top guys, the foot as being connected by rope, with a bond that connects the rope to ride the world’s people, and the top of the Peace I think it is necessary to move toward.
Conference in September in Nara (WCRP event 40th) I will have to, to feel that way so far, exciting everyone is much more I can cause psychomotor large and sincerely hope I I would like to participate in it as well. Whether you can, please participate in this campaign whether. Thank you.

ARMS DOWN! For the purpose, though, not to say to me, all the weapons, which is DOWN from that place to the ground. We used to dismantle the peace for it. I think this is the world’s religious leaders who dream of a long time. The only philosophy that is not, you collect signatures in the form of this kind that up, let’s have a specific force in the political arena through such organizations such as the Mayors for Peace, we for example, to move the United Nations, and bring about the elimination of nuclear weapons first.Furthermore, we all lose from this world war. Have such a big goal, you’re all move forward step by step concrete And I think very good work.
Victims of Hiroshima, we also experienced this you bomb survivors in Nagasaki, and came out from the “let anyone feel like this is not” in order to realize the hope, now with you I also want to work hard.
