NEGAI Stage in Hiroshima
"NEGAI Video" Dec 6, 2003 in Hyogo 


On March 8, 2002, two days before the commencement, 170 ninth graders at Ohzu Junior High School held a final concert. As the closing event of their activities during their junior high school days, they sang thirteen songs on the subject of peace. One of the songs was made from the exchange of ideas between the students and the Hiroshima Chorus. The words of this song included a declaration of peace students made. Added in this song is a message from Mr. Mohsen Makhamalbaf, a film director who produced
"Kandahar". In the 21st century, with cooperative work, junior high school students in Hiroshima have created the song "Negai". From this concert a lasting impression was created.
