I shall write peace upon your wings

I shall write peace upon your wings,
and you shall fly around the world
so that children will no longer have
to die this way.
— Teshima Yusuke 手島悠介

I wanted a quotation to commemorate August 6, Hiroshima Day.

The image was taken by Paul Tibbetts, presumably some while after the detonation. Colonel Tibbetts had been the pilot of the plane, the Enola Gay, that had dropped the bomb.
