Japan on Sunday marked 72 years since the world's first nuclear attack on Hiroshima, with the nation's traditional contradictions over atomic weapons again coming into focus.

Article states, Japan is the only country to have suffered atomic bomb attacks.

And may it always remain that way. We do not need to have this ever happen again anywhere.

I also posted a good documentary concerning same topic. If you get a bit of time I think well worth the view Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Message

They showed the before and after photos of Japan before the bombing, this morning on the news. Sad this even happened. Pray it never does again. Thanks Freya

I agree with completely with Dandelion's statement above. Let's hope this horror never happens again. Unfortunately, #45 is a whacko.

We should (all citizens of the world I mean) all mark that day and never let it be forgotten.

Unfortunately, power-possessors never seem to connect the dots, hence why we're veering on the precipice of continual war.
