Photos from Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance

This year’s annual Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance had two key elements—a walk and a program—and a hearty gathering of more than 50 peace folks. We gathered Aug. 8 not at Loose Park in KC MO, as in the past, but at the nuclear weapon plant in south KC, where some 85 percent of non-fissile parts for US nuclear weapons are made or procured. Business is booming at the plant, costing taxpayers more than $1 billion a year. Representatives from several groups attended the PeaceWorks-KC event, including Veterans for Peace, the Greater Kansas City Justice and Peace Action Team, and the Greater Kansas City Interfaith Council. Photo opportunities abounded!—captured by Jim Hannah.
