Here's a short film I did based around an interview with a Hiroshima Survivor. It was part of a series of short films that later became part of my featured documentary, Scared Sacred.

Your film is wonderful and inspiring and remind us we can use our power for love or for fear.
Let's remind to choose ... LOVE.
Love and Peace.

Velcrow: It was a terrible and horrifying day, that bomb was dropped, for the whole world... No one knew it was going to happen, and the lose of OUR Navy and
Marines was just too much. No one had the brains to pull them out before the bomb was dropped! How stupid. Hiroshima was almost destroyed. WWII was the almagation of two conflicts - one starting in Asia,1937,as the Second Sino - Japanese War and the other beginning in Europe,1939 - with the invasion of Polland! (There is alot omitted here). The Japanese continued to lose ground as American forces seized island after island in the Pacific Ocean. Initally unwilling to surrender, Japan finally catipulated after the Soviet Union , invaded Manchukuo and the UNITED STATES DROPPED ATOMIC BOMBS on the Mainland of Japan! Nucular Weapons had NOT BEEN INVENTED YET. That was an end to the War in 1945. So read the HISTORY BOOKS - NATASCHA!!!! And I didn't even write the
"THE WHOLE STORY". NO NUKES!! Atomic Bombs.... You probably were just a baby when every country was "PROTESTING NUCULAR WEAPONS" and HOW THEY WANTED TO GET
RID OF THEM.... Sorry to be so blunt - but I AM RIGHT AND YOU ARE WRONG!!!! Do
you have any idea what a nucular weapon can do? Take out all of New York City
Plus Buffalo and part of Ontario as well - if not worse! The radiation would kill as the wind blows! READ WWII - it is fasinating! FROM: LYNN

When I was in my 20's, having been brought up by a mother that hated "The Japs", I took in a student from Japan. I later met his father who told me what The War had been like for him. I now knew both sides of the story. From that time I truly understood the futility of war and have been committed to supporting peace ever since.

I would imagine that you are aware of two other peace initiatives - www.parallelcommunity.com and www.peacedirect.org. If we can all work together, our collective wisdom, experience and vision for a world that respects difference, will triumph. I attended last week in London a "Be The Change" symposium - a perfect example of individuals coming together for the common good to collectively and individually be the change we wish to see in the world (see www.bethechange.org.uk). It's great to know just how much support there already is globally for a new way of being - together we can do this!!

Dear Velcrow,
Thank you so much for caring enough to make such an important and moving video - I feel privileged to have had a chance to view it and to read all the comments from iPeace members. The words of this woman survivor were so haunting that I felt them being etched into my heart. We must remember Pearl Harbor but we must never forget Hiroshima! They are symbols and reminders of man's inhumanity to man. We must be aware of and acknowledge what we are capable of doing so horribly to each other so that we can keep ourselves in check and help each other and work toward peace and unity - our survival and spiritual growth depend on it.
Thank you again and peace to you always, Mary A.

Makes me wish that peace could replace all wars and that love could be in place of hate in order for this to be a reality. And despite differences there can be common bonds that achieve positive direction in our lives, in the world, with each other! :D
