The Public is invited to gather at Lovers Point Cove in Pacific Grove, Saturday evening, August 6, 2022, to remember and honor those who suffered and still suffer, from the atomic bombings in Hiroshima and Nagasaki Japan, on August 6th and 9th, 1945. This annual vigil reaffirms the imperative for global nuclear abolition and prohibition so that such a tragedy is never repeated. This free event will be respectful, inclusive, and free of cultural appropriation.
