Since the end of May 1998, India and Pakistan have conducted
their Nuclear Tests, a deadly weapons race appears to have
begun in Asia. As teachers and schoolchildren there is little
we can do to stop the policy of governments, but we can express
We made these Haikus to appeal to the world to stop all the
weapons and claim for peace.
In Nagasaki we feel it's our responsibility to send out anti-nuclear
appeals continually. The A-bomb horrors are still with our
parents and grand parents. We know the reality of nuclear
war-fare, and understand the hatred and antagonism that might
provoke it. The world has changed since the end of WW2, when
people were thrown into pain and war by over-zealous leaders.
Now governments must listen to opinion and reason. The pain
and sorrow of nuclear destruction and the after-effects should
never again be felt anywhere on earth.
No country should consider creating such weapons, and those
that already possess them should co-operate for disarmament.
Please listen to our voice !
