This year marks 65 years since the U.S. dropped two atomic bombs on Japan.  In remembrance, witnesses of Nagasaki's bombing  rang a bell on Shelter Island Monday to promote lasting peace.  It's called the Friendship Bell.  It represents a sincere effort to ensure that no generation will suffer the effects of such destruction, nuclear or otherwise.  Many of San Diego's leaders joined the Universal Initiative for Agape Alliance in Monday's service.  It included a moment of silence and stories of survival from World War Two participants.
