On Wednesday, a coalition of community groups held a ceremony of remembrance for the first time nuclear weapons were used 69 years ago.

The ceremony was at the Japanese Peace Garden at Enger Park. It was a time to remember the lives lost when the U.S. dropped a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima, to help end World War II.

The ceremony included prayers from many religions, and a proclamation from the mayor's office. Organizers said there are other ways to find civility.

"We can find ways to get to know each other and solve problems in a more humane way than going to war and using nuclear bombs," said Scot Bol of Veterans for Peace.

There is another ceremony of remembrance scheduled for Duluth's Canal Park on Saturday, Aug. 9, at 11 a.m.
