The first SOPP ceremony in Los Angeles was held on May 18 at the Byakko Los Angeles dojo. Participants watched Masami Saionji’s speech at the UN on February 14, and then three prayer leaders presented religious prayer for peace. Next, the national flags were presented as participants prayed for peace in each country and region, closing with the song “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”
