2015 is the 70th year of the end of the WWII and the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. In remembrance of the devastation of that city, the flame, kindled from the original fires that burnt after the attack, will be carried on a pilgrimage, from Hiroshima, via Kyoto, Tokyo and an array of cities in Europe to eventually reach Jerusalem. Along the flame’s journey, the “Earth Caravan,” will conduct interfaith prayers for peace, and in the case of Japan, Chris has been invited to read poems in all three cities: the “Peace Park” in Hiroshima, (July 5th), Choin-in temple in Kyoyo (July 12th) and the Zojo-ji temple on Tokyo (July 19th) - events he is particularly honoured to participate in.
