People form a line on a dock as they wait to put their lanterns in the water during From Hiroshima to Hope's 29th annual lantern ceremony at Green Lake on Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014, the 69th anniversary of the year Hiroshima and Nagasaki were bombed during World War II. Seattle Kokon Taiko and former Washington State Poet Laureate Kathleen Flenniken were among the featured speakers and performers. The toro nagashi, or lantern floating ceremony, was held at dusk and led by Choeizan Enkyoji Buddhist Temple and Nipponzan Myohoji Dojo.
