Peace vigil to commemorate nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki 74 years ago
It is 74 years ago that the first atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. The vigil service held at the Peace Pole in the grounds of St. Anne’s Episcopal/Methodist Church, Dunbar, commemorated those who died and witnessed to the continuing need for peace, disarmament and reconciliation.
The vigil on August 9th was led by the Rev. David Mumford and supported by members of other churches in Dunbar.
The words of Pope Francis were read, calling on humanity to reject war for ever and to ban nuclear weapons.
Thanks were given for the recent United Nations Treaty countries outlawing nuclear weapons and prayers were said that our nation would sign up to the Treaty.
The vigil ended with prayers for peace between countries.
