Last night was Hiroshima night

so I went to listen to the speeches and to send my floating candle onto Töölönlahti Bay, of the Sculpture Park fame. (Dear reader, this was in Helsinki, not Hilo - I feel a phony writing under the Hawai'ian topic!) My camera ran out of batteries so I have no pictures, but it was beautiful all the same. One of the speakers was Helena Ranta, a doctor of forensic medicine and a lady I enormously admire. She earns her living identifying the victims of genocide in Kosovo and elsewhere. I wish my life was more about righting wrongs than about making a general mess of things.

Hey Anna, I had not heard of Helen Ranta and looked her up, she certainly does interesting work!
