Join Friends in our tradition of commemorating the dropping of two atomic bombs on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. We will gather for a community reading of Thomas Merton’s “Original Child Bomb,” and then proceed to the Charles River to float candles, as is done in Hiroshima and throughout the world. The Pentagon has earmarked a trillion dollars over the next 30 years to develop three more generations of nuclear weapons, and this year the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists has set the “doomsday clock” to 2 minutes before midnight (30 seconds later than in previous years). Please share this meditation and witness for a future uncursed by nuclear weapons and the grief they bring.  For more information, please contact John Bach at bolder@fmcquaker.org or 970-209-8346.
