Echoes. Hope. Two hands. These came into play at our annual observance Aug. 7, “Remembering Hiroshima & Nagasaki: Never Again!”
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.
