A Petition to the Congress of the United States to Declare August 6th Nuclear Disarmament Day We petition the Congress of the United States of America to declare August 6th as a national day of remembrance. August 6th,1945 is the day the United States dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. A second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, Japan on August 9th, 1945. Sixty-three years have passed and it is time to remember that day so that there will NEVER AGAIN be a nuclear holocaust. We the signers of this petition ask that the United States Congress declare August 6th NUCLEAR DISARMAMENT DAY.
