A volunteer is surrounded by lighted lanterns as they float in Green Lake during the From Hiroshima to Hope, an annual peace event held in Seattle August 6, 2012. The lantern floating ceremony is a Japanese Buddhist ritual, in which lanterns representing the souls of the dead are floated out to sea. The ceremony is re-enacted each year at this time in Hiroshima and Nagasaki and other cities throughout the world in remembrance of the atomic bomb victims. (UPI Photo/Jim Bryant)).
