Hiroshima and Nagasaki Remembered in NYC
- New York City 08/07/2013 by Linda Perry Barr (WBAI News)
It's a celebration of peace, on the 68th anniversary of when the U.S. dropped a uranium bomb on Hiroshima destroying 140, 000 lives and three days later a plutonium bomb killing 70,000 more in Nagasaki, Japan. Music, poetry, introspection and visions of peace brought people together in Union Square. Named Universal Peace Day, the concept for the gathering is to transform a moment of horror into a rededication to life.
