On Nov. 12, Ann Suellentrop took four signs to PeaceWorks-KC members on the public right-of-way at 14510 Botts Road, the long entry road to the Nuclear Security Campus, where non-radioactive parts for US nuclear weapons are made. And several times she's brought the signs to the weekly witness for peace on Tuesdays, 5-6pm, at Ward Parkway and 63rd Street.
The novel COVID-19 virus resulted in a novel Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance by PeaceWorks-KC Aug. 9. The annual event took place for the first time not outdoors but online. Victor Dougherty reflected on the Buddhist saying, “As long as there is war within, there will be war without.” Victor led the Zoom attendees in blessings for themselves, for others difficult to embrace, and for the entire world.
