Kaz Suyieshi, a survivor of the 1945 U.S. bombing of Hiroshima, relights
UCSB's Eternal Flame monument in yesterday's Peace Flame ceremony.
The "spiritual unity summit on nonviolence" may become an annual event
during the second week in January to reaffirm UCSB's dedication to peace.
Rev. Gyoten Yoshida led a prayer for peace at the relighting while other
spiritual leaders from around the country called for a renewed commitment
to universal nonviolence.
