Hiroshima Day

Sixty one years ago 140,000 residents of the city of Hiroshima died when the United States Air Force dropped a nuclear bomb on the city. Three days later, the Americans bombed Nagasaki with another nuclear weapon, killing another 74,000 people. We may debate over the role of these bombings in WWII, but we shall never let these images fade away into history, because, despite of the end of the Cold War, we are still sitting on a huge pile of nuclear weapons. We cannot ever unleash this hellish technology again!
