August marks 69 years since the world witnessed the only two times nuclear weapons have been used.

A coalition of community groups held their second ceremony of remembrance Saturday at the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center in Canal Park. Organizers say it's important to remember the lives that were lost when the U.S. dropped two nuclear bombs on Japan to help end World War II.

"They say that those who don't remember history are condemned to repeat it and there are some things that we should just not repeat as a human race," said John Pegg with the Veterans for Peace Chapter 80. "Nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction is one of them."

August 9th, 1945 was the day the second bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.
