This is very much in line with how the bombings are remembered in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, not as events to foment hatred and resentment but as tragedies that humans inflicting on fellow humans that should be prevented from happening ever again. Not focusing on blaming anybody but on what can be done to avoid it. The fact that this event is done in Oregon is specially important in the meaning of peace that it has, and for obvious reasons the timing is also crucial.

An Oregon official involved in the campaign told the audience that recognition of the continued threat of nuclear weapons is especially relevant today, with Russian President Vladimir Putin making veiled threats to use them in his war against Ukraine.

Leave it to Oregon.

The nuclear bombs used in WWII were a response to a nation being attacked, not the other way around.

“I believe the best way for me to speak about peace is through the A-bombed trees.

How about speaking about the threat of militarily aggressive governments like WWII Japan, and the current Russian government. There's a relative link. No reason to mention only atomic weapons, when bullets are the deadliest weapon of all time.
