Mount Baker Meaningful Movie: The Vow from Hiroshima, Thursday, Sept. 24th, 6 pm
Have you heard that in the midst of these climate, Covid and economic crises, Congress is considering spending more tax dollars for nuclear weapons and testing? Fortunately, many voices, new and old, are speaking up to prevent nuclear war. The documentary, Vow from Hiroshima, follows Setsuko Thurlow, a passionate, 85-year-old survivor of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima, who won the 2017 Nobel Peace Award as part of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons, ICAN.
Setsuko was miraculously pulled out of a fiery building after the bomb was dropped and unable to save her other 27 classmates who were burned to death alive. That experience shaped her life forever and she endeavored to keep a pledge she made to her friends – that never again would anyone suffer this.
After the movie, you will hear from a panel of experts and will be invited ask questions about how to prevent the global dangers of nuclear weapons. THE VOW FROM HIROSHIMA reminds us all that there is still so much we need to do in order to make sure this tragedy never occurs again.
To watch this movie and join the panel, you will need to register. As always, it will be free, with donations requested to pay for the costs.
