The illuminated peace flotilla is ferried out against the breeze in the Tenney Park lagoon

With a little help from their friends, the first of Monday night's Lanterns for Peace made their way out into Madison's Tenney Park Lagoon, at dusk on Aug. 9. 2010 -- the 65th anniversary of the incineration of Nagasaki, which came three days after Hiroshima was destroyed by the first of the two atomic bombs the U. S. dropped on Japan. So many years after the horror, a moment of remembrance and a whisper of hope.
