Hiroshima, Lest We Forget

IMG_7990 This is the eve before the bomb was dropped in Hiroshima, 71 years ago. The bomb was detonated mid air, just 150 meters from the Prefectural Industrial Promotional Hall, or now known as Genbaku (A-Bomb) Dome. The building, designed by Jan Etzel, maintain its structural integrity, even though the bomb itself incinerated an area of 1 mile radius, killing 70,000 to 80,000 people, almost a third of Hiroshima population at the time.

The event still incites debates today, with many people doubting the necessity of dropping such bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki to secure victory for the allies. The more important thing is to realise, that innocent people have always been the victim of war or act of terrorism. Here to world peace, a cry to save humanity, in hope we can accept everyone as they are, fellow human being.
