62 Years After The Bomb - Hiroshima, August 6, 1945
Sixty-two years ago today, on August 6, 1945, the nuclear weapon "Little Boy" was dropped on the Japanese city of Hiroshima, This was the first time that a nuclear weapon was used as an act of warfare.
The United States estimates that the death toll from the blast was roughly 70,000, with many thousands of additional deaths in the weeks, months and years after the explosion.
Everything changed on that day.
From that day on, mankind has had the weapons necessary to destroy civilization on this planet and kill literally billions of human beings. Everything changed on August 6th, 1945.
If the community of nations that inhabit this planet, cannot find ways to resolve our disputes and conflicts in a less primitive manner, then there is always the possiblity that nuclear conflict could occur again. We must never allow nuclear weapons to be used as a political or military solution ever again!
The human race has survived 62 years without using nuclear weapons as an act of war. It is worth commmemorating this as an accomplishment.
And yet, even here in Canada we have persons who are so politically deranged and morally depraved, that they demand the use of nuclear weapons! To call for the use of nuclear weapons is clearly insanity - it should be a crime!
