Yesterday, August 6th, 2008 marks the 63 years since the United States military dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. Each year I can help but personally commemorate all the lives lost to what I perceive as the most abhorrent and inhumane action in the history of civilization. On August 9th, the US military dropped a second more powerful bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. It is unknown how many people were killed and died as a result of these explosions, the numbers are over 250,000. These two days always remind me why I am anti-war.
There’s plenty of haunting videos and photos you can find about the bombings and effect. Plenty more to read online try WIkipedia if you wanna start somewhere.
