War is the work of man

War is destruction of human life. War is death.

With deep emotion, Pope John Paul II came to Hiroshima as a pilgrim of peace and made an appeal for peace from Hiroshima on February 25, 1981.

30 years on, let us continue to pray with him for peace.

To remember the past is to commit oneself to the future.

To those who believe in God, I say:

let us be strong in his strength that infinitely surpasses our own;

let us be united in the knowledge that he calls us to unity;

let us be aware that love and sharing are not faraway ideals but the road to enduring peace
