Bomb Remembrance Day: We commemorate the fateful August morning in 1945 when nuclear bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

“Dear Friends: Loving thoughts of our Japanese brothers and sisters are in our hearts during this commemoration of the atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We do not forget the horrors experienced by our Japanese friends and their loved ones on those days, or the long lasting effects of the attacks on the Japanese people. We share your intention for total nuclear non-proliferation in our time. Your hope is our hope – never again for any living thing on earth, especially people, to experience another nuclear bomb.”
