Remembering Hiroshima Peace Walk & Ceremony

Event:             Remembering Hiroshima Peace Walk & Ceremony

When:             August 6, 2021

Where:            Starting at Kellogg-Hubbard Library, Montpelier

                       The annual Remembering Hiroshima Peace Walk and Ceremony on August 6 began at 6:45 p.m. at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library in downtown Montpelier and proceeded in silence down State Street to the high school. Participants carried peace cranes made and donated by a Hiroshima resident whose family experienced the bombing. At 7:15 p.m., the exact time of the dropping of the bomb, the bells of Christ Church chimed 76 times, once for every year since the bombing. Upon arrival at Montpelier High School, a short ceremony took place in which we shared our thoughts on peace and war and sang favorite peace songs, culminating in sending flowers with intentions for peace down the Winooski river. All welcome to participate.
