Following the current, it joined the stream of thousands of others, decorated with hand-drawn peace signs, flowers, globes, and prayers for peace in many languages, flowing past the skeletal ruins of the iconic A-bomb Dome and under the Aioi Bridge, which had served as the target for the atomic bomb, 70 years before. On the night of August 6, 1945, victims of the bombi...
