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.
