Let us shut down our internal nukes, until we shut down our external nukes
Join us for a silent meditation and prayer for Japan and for all victims of the Fukushima nuclear disaster past present and future, on the third anniversary of the meltdowns, March 11, at 12 noon. Bring candles, warm hearts, and warm clothes: we'll convene in MLK Civic Center Park and form a circle on the grass; after a few words we'll sit silently for 20 minutes (though you can stop whenever you like), and then discuss what we feel.
