Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.

Below is one of the contest entries.

In last 70 years, Japan underwent two awful disasters.
The one by atomic bomb 
The one by the earthquake
Thousands of people died and injured in those two
There is one big difference
"HIBAKU" is human disaster
Atomic bombs were made by human monster
It could be stopped by human power
Let’s cooperate together for better future
No more Hiroshima No more Nagasaki

— Ayaka Nojiri
