HIROSHIMA “Rest In Peace We Shall Not Repeat The Sin”
[
from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial]

The atomic bombing of Hiroshima, August 6, 1945, wiped out 90 percent of the city and immediately killed 80,000 people in the blast and firestorm; tens of thousands more would later die of radiation exposure. Three days after Hiroshima the U.S. dropped another A-bomb on Nagasaki, killing an estimated 40,000 people, and thousands more from the delayed effects of radiation poisoning.

In memory of the dead, as they peer to us from under the mushroom clouds, remember that the unimaginable threat of world wide nuclear devastation, will only end with the abolition of nuclear weapons and the tools of their production.

Join with the Brandywine Peace Community, friends, and supporters,  in the renewed fight to abolish nuclear weapons and rid the Earth of the threat to all humanity, the threat of nuclear war!
