Event Description

Honoring the Memory of those who suffered the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945

Join us in honoring the memory of those who suffered the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.

What would have been our 16th Annual Peace Lantern Ceremony at Lovers Point Cove in Pacific Grove was canceled over concerns of COVID-19. We invite you to take part in our virtual Remembrance and Peace Lantern Ceremony.

→ The program will open with an invocation by Reverend Jay Shinseki.
The Story of Sadako Sasaki and the Thousand Cranes will be presented by Larry Oda.
→ Our Keynote Speaker will be Arlington “Arly” La Mica.
→ Invocation for the Peace Lantern Ceremony will be given by Carole Erickson.
Beverly Bean will Emcee.
A Video Retrospective of past Hiroshima-Nagasaki Remembrance Events at Lovers Point Cove in Pacific Grove, California produced by Wes White will be shown.

August 2020 will mark the 75th Anniversary of the nuclear attacks on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Monterey Peace and Justice Center, the Peace Coalition of Monterey County, and a host of local organizations have planned a series of live-stream events to honor the victims and to amplify the voices of the survivors of the horrific bombing in 1945.
