Hiroshima/Nagasaki Commemoration at FMC

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,” at 6:00pm and then proceed at 7:00pm to the Charles River to float origami paper boats and peace cranes, 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 have set the “doomsday clock” to 100 seconds before midnight. Please share this meditation and witness for a future uncursed by nuclear weapons and the grief they bring. Read more here.
