ON AUGUST 6, 1045 AT 8:15 AM, THE UNITED STATES DROPPED A URANIUM BOMB ON HIROSHIMA JAPAN. IN A TOWN OF 300,000, ONE-THIRD TO ONE-HALF OF THE POPULATION DIED IN THE BLAST OR FROM SUSTAINED INJURIES WITHIN TWO TO FOUR MONTHS. THIS ACT OF MASS CIVILIAN DESTRUCTION MARKED THE DAWN OF THE NUCLEAR AGE

IN 1984, A GROUP OF ARTISTS HELD A CONCERT IN CENTRAL PART AND PROCLAIMED A "UNIVERSAL PEACE DAY" TO BE HELD ON THE DAY OF THE BOMBING, WHICH IS AUGUST 5, IN THE UNITED STATES. TWENTY SIX YEARS LATER, THIS PAST THURSDAY, AROUND THREE HUNDRED GATHERED IN FRONT OF THE NEW YORK BUDDHIST CHURCH ON RIVERSIDE DRIVE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CEREMONIES.
