Photograph of the Peace Pole was taken during the Hiroshima Day event where we walked around the Töölönlahti Bay in Helsinki, with a banner for World March for Peace and Nonviolence (www.theworldmarch.org <http://www.theworldmarch.org). During our walk, one of the participants informed us that there is a Peace Pole planted next to the Finlandia Hall. I was not even aware of the presence of the Peace Pole before that day! (Though I am a native of Helsinki, I live in Denmark.) So, when we came past the Peace Pole, we stopped for a while and took a couple of photographs. Then we proceeded to the event, where lanterns were released to the bay in memory of Hiroshima victims.
Peace, force and Joy in the Spirit of May Peace Prevail On Earth!
