======== MEMORIAL DAY FOR PEACE ==============================================

 Please join us on Monday, May 27 for our Memorial Day for Peace on Boston  
Harbor.

We have a wonderful program planned: We will remember our friend and partner  
in peace Charley Richardson, with remarks by Bonnie Gorman and Nancy Lessin.  
  We will have a remembrance of Hiroshima and Nagaski with David Rothauser,  
Producer of the film /Hibakusha: Our Life to Live/, and Kazue Cambell, a  
Hiroshima survivor.   Sev Bruyn will speak about the Dangers of another  
nuclear catastrophe and Cole Harrison (Mass Peace Action) will speak about  
America after Hegemony.   Webb Nichols will share his writing, "Common  
Thoughts on Our Common Humanity.   A member from the Iraqi community will  
speak (TBD) and then we will have our Flower Ceremony. Rev. Lara Hoke and  
Rev. Ralph Galen will say the beginning and ending words.   Brian Quirk will  
play the bag-pipes and Jesse Perrier will end the program by playing taps.    
Please join us and please pass the word to others to also join us. Thank you,  
Pat Scanlon, Coordinator, Veterans for Peace, Smedley Butler Brigade
