Each Step a Prayer Towards World Peace & a Nuclear Free Future: Potluck & Program
This is an opportunity for all people to come together in a nonviolent, spiritually motivated gathering. The Walkers are calling attention to the 2010 Nonproliferation Treaty Conference at the United Nations. With increased support of public opinion, Pres. Obama and the new Administration will be encouraged to abolish the use of nuclear weapons. The walk began on July 6 at Trinity, the first testing site of the atomic bomb, and then went to Los Alamos both in New Mexico. Here they will walk and pray at Livermore, (the H-bomb Lab) and continue on to Bangor Trident Base in Washington state for Hiroshima and Nagasaki Days.
