70th anniversary of atomic bombing of Japan will be observed Aug. 6

To The Daily Sun,

To commemorate the 70 year anniversary of the U.S. dropping atomic bombs on Japan, members of the Concord community and several faith-based and activist organizations will hold an event to raise awareness of the current threat of nuclear war and to call for the abolition of nuclear weapons. This will take place on Thursday, Aug. 6, from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Concord campus of New England College, 62 North Main St. in Concord. A light potluck meal will precede a panel discussion by community leaders, followed by a walk and vigil alongside the Merrimack River.

As has been done in the past, we will cast flowers into the river as we remember names of our bomb's Japanese victims. Bring flowers from home gardens, or purchased, or wild flowers like golden rod and Queen Anne's lace. We do this knowing the tragic use of nuclear bombs remains a real threat to life.

Co-sponsoring organizations include N.H. Peace Action, American Friends Service Committee NH, NH Vets for Peace, Peace with Justice Advocates of United Church of Christ, Global Zero, and Social Responsibility Committee of Unitarian Universalist Church of Manchester. Call N.H. Peace Action at 228-0559 for more info and suggestions for car-parking, car-pooling because of street construction in Concord.

With zero insight on current events, he settles for smears & slanders

To The Daily Sun,

Well, well look who's back after a month of silence, James (potty mouth) Veverka.

Typically he has zero insights on current events so instead settles for smears and slanders at which he excels. Mostly he goes after Donald Trump, but decided to accost me personally. Maybe because I'm perceived as a Christian by him but I'm not the turn-the-cheek kind of Christian, so I'll hit back.

James calls me a "grand wizard". This is clearly an attempt to infer I'm racist, I am not. As James of all people knows every grand wizard that ever was was a Democrat like him. As for being a "birther" I only questioned why Obama didn't release a birth certificate for more then a year (as I recall) and put the question to rest early on. So that doesn't stick either.

More importantly though James fails to address any of the issues I raise in my letter to the editor. In reference to racial issues he says, and I quote "blah, blah, blah". What an intellectual genius! Then what can he say every thing he stands for has fallen down around him, he has no intelligent responses so like an adolescent resorts to name-calling.

Don't cry James, if you can't take it don't try to dish it out.
