See What I Am Doing Locally, Nationally and Internationally

This is a video of the rally I spoke at on August 6, 2023 which was the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshimma and Nagasaki. It was held at the United Nations Plaza with a crowd of over 500 peace makers. Some of the other speakers were Presidential candidates Robert F. Kennedy Jr.  Aaron Day and Mike Ter Maat. Also represented were Democrats, Republicans, 3 religions and many other nationalities. My speech is at the 28:18 minute of the video. I was privileged to do the Innvocation, render my speech and sing the song "Let There Be Peace On Earth".
