The Atomic Bomb
Seventy-five years ago the United States dropped the first ever atomic bombs on two cities in Japan, killing 225,000 human lives. The additional injuries and illnesses leading to slow deaths are not calculable. There is no dearth of information and horrific photographs to document this hell that befell the people of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

One thought on “Dark Anniversary”
This has always bothered me, even when studying it in history, as do the interments camps we had back then. I am glad (so far) that we have learned from the past, and hopefully will continue to do so.
