Peace Gong - 75 years

I can think of no more appropriate image than this (also PiP) for the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima on 6 August and, on 9 August, of Nagasaki. There are several World Peace Gongs around the world, this one is in Vientiane, Laos. Here's a musical link (which ties back to the film "On the Beach", thanks to ipernity member MaggsMep for reminding me of it recently). HFF, stay safe everyone.

Thank you, Ernst. The swastika has a long involvement with many religions, before it was used by the Nazis. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika
