No More Hiroshimas and No More Nagasakis! We don’t want nuclear weapons. We don’t want them for ourselves. We don’t want you to have them. We don’t want them to exist.

Many of us in the United States support you and your cause, and more and more of us all the time are learning the horror of and complete lack of justification for the first two uses of nuclear weapons on earth, as well as the total destruction that will result if we don’t get rid of these tools of death.

Wish you all success.
I am in solidarity with Peace March in commemoration of the use of atom bomb in twin Japanese cities over five decades ago next month.
Really, the world should have been spared this horror. Peace workers,concerned agencies and responsible governments around the globe should work towards a peace coexistence.
May this March touch the hearts of key players in world peace matters.
To all the amazing Marchers for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons:
Thank you for your dedication and inspiration. May the world wake up and take notice that we, the people, do not want nuclear weapons. We do not need nuclear weapons. We want and need a world that knows how to resolve its conflicts nonviolently, a world where people recognize our shared humanity and strive to live in peace.

I am sending my sincere gratitude for your continued commitment to a total ban on nuclear weapons and my heartfelt good wishes for your National Peace March toward Hiroshima and Nagaski. I truly wish I could be among you!
Dot Walsh and I just returned from 2 1/2 weeks in Vietnam meeting with victims of Agent Orange and UXOs (unexploded ordinance) … the very real and horridle legacy’s of a war that never should have happened. We took a small replica of the Stone we pulled in Stonewalk Japan 2005 and Stonewalk Korea 2007 to the Vietnam Friendship Village in Hanoi and were surprised and pleased to find a similar Stone already there, brought by a Veteran for Peace on an earlier mission. See photo below.
The two blue Earth and Peace flags which flew on the caisson are now going to fly over the children living in Friendship Village. I plan to send them photographs of the Japanese and Korean children who walked with the Stone.
There is strength and healing solidarity among those who understand the pressing importance of ending wars – ALL wars – and eliminating the war machine and weapons that bring devastation and lasting pain and suffering to people, all life and to the Earth herself.
I trust the Marchers will reach not only Nagasaki and Hiroshima, but also many heart and bring awareness to multitudes along the way.
In solidarity and gratitude,
