The atomic bomb droppings on Hiroshima on August 6th and on Nagasaki on August 9th 1945 were the last live use of nuclear weapons in history. August 5th 2019 in the US (August 6th in Japan) will mark the 74rd anniversary of the bombings and hence 74 years of freedom from nuclear weapon usage.
SD-WISH invites you to join us on the beautiful Shelter Island for a morning of commemoration as we gong the Friendship Bell to celebrate this freedom and send our WISH for eternal peace. Community members and leaders share their messages of dedication to peace, understanding and tolerance.
