On Monday, August 5, the Coalition for Peace Action held a Commemoration that marked 74 years since the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Commemoration was CFPA's 40th. About 60 were in attendance. 

The event featured (in order) - Glenn Swann, who plays the Shakuhachi (Japanese flute), a moment of silence at 7:15 (which correlates to the 8:15 AM bombing on August 6 in Hiroshima), singer Diane Beeny's rendition of "Never Again the A-Bomb," keynote speaker Mira Nakashima (daughter of renowned woodworker and furniture designer George Nakashima, and a celebrated artist herself), a group sing-along to "Down by the Riverside," an update on Iran and North Korea from Dr. Rob Goldston of Princeton University, a statement regarding the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend, and a candlelight vigil accompanied by classical guitar from Charlie Frantz.
