WPPS in collaboration with James Twyman of World Peace Pulse hosted a live synchronized global meditation at the exact moment the bomb was dropped 71 years ago along with a musical offering of peace songs by James.

The message and prayer, May Peace Prevail On Earth, authored by Masahisa Goi of Japan rose out of the ashes of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a message of peace, hope and reconciliation.  The peace message has now touched the hearts of men, women and children the world over and continues to awaken the consciousness of the global family.

As the very first sitting President of the United States, President Obama joined atomic bomb survivors and Japanese officials for a memorial ceremony in Hiroshima Peace Park

on May 27th, 2016.  His visit of reconciliation and healing was received with great appreciation and touched the hearts of the citizens of Hiroshima.  In gratitude and in honor of his visit, WPPS members of Hiroshima sent President Obama a Peace Pole. 

Let’s all hope that it will be planted soon in front of the white house!
