Saturday August 6, 6:45 pm in Montpelier
77 years ago the U.S. dropped the first atomic bomb ever on this Japanese city. We gather to acknowledge its horrific immediate and lasting effects, and to support eachother in creating peace in whatever ways we can.
After meeting on the Kellogg-Hubbard Library lawn at 6:45 pm, we will walk silently down State St., pausing at 7:15, the moment the bomb was dropped, as the Christ Church bell tolls 77 times. Then we proceed to a field at Montpelier High School.
In a circle there we will share our thoughts about peace and war, and join together in singing peace songs. Finally, we will send flowers down the river with our aspirations and commitments to peace.
In case of rain, the event will move to the Unitarian Church across the street from the library.
