Gila Friends Meeting (Quaker) invites you to join them in their annual Hiroshima Peace Day commemoration this Sunday, August 8, at Gough Park. Bring a chair to the pavilion at 12:30 p.m. and join others in considering the terrifying power unleashed 76 years ago when the United States detonated an atomic bomb over Hiroshima, Japan, on August 6, 1945, and another one over Nagasaki, Japan, three days later.

The August 8 commemoration will begin with a period of silent contemplation, after which there will be a time for sharing of views on the continuing nuclear threat. Attendees will also be able to view ten War Resisters League posters detailing the events leading up to the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings and the resulting nuclear arms race.
