Peace Walk – Day Seven and Prayer Vigil Photos

March 10 was the last day of the Peace Walk, with the Walkers gathering at The Mission in San Luis Obispo and walking to Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant.

Walking in the direct shadow of Diablo’s influence, we expected some heckling and negative feedback, but to our surprise, the response from drivers that passed us was overwhelmingly encouraging: thumbs up, waves and smiles! Thank you, San Luis Obispoan!

March 11, the third anniversary of Fukushima, began with a beautiful prayer session at the gates of Diablo Canyon. Joining Sawada and the Peace Walkers were members of the Chumash Nation and Pilulaw Khus, Mother of the Bear Clan and Ceremonial Leader who performed a traditional blessing.

Reverend Sawada prayed all day, on a knoll just above the main gates to Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant, for all nuclear victims and for a nuclear free future.
