The year 2000 is not only the last year of this century but also this millennium. We, as human beings, have been experiencing far too many wars and conflicts throughout this closing century on this planet called Earth. We are sure that most human beings are feeling deep inside their hearts "enough is enough", whether consciously or unconsciously. Upon entering a new century and a new millennium, we will have to move from the century of devastating war to the century of world peace and harmony, as this is just a natural course of human evolution. To promote this movement further, we would like to propose a Hiroshima-Hawaii Joint WPPC (World Peace Prayer Ceremony) Project.

What is WPPC?

WPPC is a ceremony, which has been done many times in many countries on many different occasions, including at the headquarters of the United Nations in New York City. It is a ceremony that is not religious in any sense and transcends barriers of nationality, race and religion to unite humanity. During the ceremony, each participant carries the national flag of a country and walks to the stage, one by one, raises the flag, and all the people there repeat together, "May Peace Prevail On Earth" and "May Peace be in (Name of the Country)". The prayer is repeated until the peace in all the nations on Earth has been prayed for; so the procedure is repeated approximately 190 times, depending upon the number of the nations on Earth at that point of time. Basically, that's it.

What is WPPS?

Most of our members are also members of The World Peace Prayer Society (WPPS). This is a non-profit, member-supported, non-sectarian organization dedicated to spreading the message and prayer "May Peace Prevail on Earth" (see Founded in Japan in 1955, the Society has its world headquarters in New York City, and it is recognized as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) affiliated with the Office of Communications and Public Information at the United Nations. WPPC is actually one of the major activities performed by this Society.
