Editors, Vineyard Gazette:
On behalf of the Martha’s Vineyard Peace Council, I want to extend my gratitude to Alison Mead and the Vineyard Gazette for their coverage of our annual gathering in remembrance of the atomic bomb attacks at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The bombs were dropped 67 years ago and every August 6 since then has been a reminder of the immense importance of peace in our world. It is our task to refresh that inner peace in our hearts every single day and reflect peace in our thoughts and actions as we engage with each other. Like a loaf of good bread, peace must be made new every day.
