Hiroshima on August 6th with Enduring Memory : 70th Anniversary Remembrance 2015
Atomic Bombs and Human Terror are of the same thought. At 8:15AM on August 6th, 1945, 350,000 citizens existed. In less than the following minute, 70,000 perished, many virtually atomized. Within a few weeks, 70,000 more died from horrific injury and radiation. These 140,000 Hiroshima family members perished because national cultures became so relentless to destroy fellow human beings during the violence of World War II. This is the story of a young American naval aviator who visited the Memorial Peace Park with a young alert group of Hiroshima Atomic Bomb survivors. The life of carrier aviation, an escape from Manchuria, sumo wrestling by young ladies, walking through Ground Zero and the Peace Park memorials, experiencing the iconic A-bomb Dome, Floating Lanterns, Japanese food and culture come into play. It portrays that we unique but fragile human beings must forever discipline against nuclear weapons and a world at war. Today, Hiroshima remains the foundation to the mandatory plea of "Never Again" for the release of nuclear weapons. This story ends by presenting ideas for avoiding World War. The reader and those in this story will always remember August 6th, and enduringly, so should the World.
