Please plan to come Sunday, Aug. 7, to our PeaceWorks Kansas City annual Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance. As we did last year, we’ll park at 6:15 pm on Prospect near Mo. Hwy. 150 and walk 1 mile to the entry road to the KC National Security Campus at 14510 Botts Road, KC MO. The KCNSC eats up $1.2 billion of our tax dollars each year, making parts for nuclear weapons.

In our 7 pm rally at the entry road to the KCNSC, we’ll call for cutting nuke dollars and other outrageous war dollars. We seek a caring economy, caring for our Earth and all of us, rather than the violent economy of militarism.

With music and talks, we’ll recall the 1945 bombings of Hiroshima on Aug. 6 and of Nagasaki on Aug. 9. We’ll ponder our need for nonviolence—in our own hearts, our own spirits, our relationships, our wider world. We’ll be at one with our brothers and sisters in Japan and with those around the world seeking peace.

For info on this Aug. 7 evening observance, contact Henry Stoever:, 913-375-0045.

In a separate effort, PeaceWorks activist Daniel Karam is going to pray at the entry road at 14510 Botts Road at the exact times that the US attacked Hiroshima and Nagasaki. For info on the dates and times (day or night) of Daniel’s two vigils, contact him:, 816-800-2914.
