The New England Peace Pagoda’s Hiroshima-Nagasaki Walk

August 4, 2015 @ 9:00 am - August 9, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

The Single Cry of the Survivors to the World:

Never Again Must Nuclear Weapons Be Used By Anyone”

“Abolish War”

Let Us Walk Together

Hearing the Cry of Survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

Let us take up Their Single, Universally True Cry.

Let us move with the majority of the world who has clearly called for the abolition of all nuclear weapons. Only nine nuclear-armed nations cling to their unconscionable weapons of mass destruction.

Let us transform the energy of fear and almighty violence to an energy of coming together to create a new civilization — one which nurtures community, which supports everyone’s life.

Let us find way to live in harmony with the Earth in order to quickly mitigate the destruction brought on by the human-made climate crisis.
