The Horror of Hiroshima

Today is the anniversary of the U.S. nuclear bombing of Hiroshima. I’ll have some stuff to say later on, but in the meantime here’s a fascinating post on this horrific event by Eric Francis at Planet Waves.

Jude’s Threshold also has some interesting thoughts on the anniversary of the day the black rain fell.

  1. Well, I didn’t MEAN IT but somehow, 36 years ago my husband and I picked HIROSHIMA DAY to get married.It was a delightful wedding day, on our favorite beach in ocean City New Jersey– you know, a hippie wedding, bare feet,etc.It’s a lot of years later and he is still my man..I am still recklessly in love witih him, and life is good. I spend some part of my day praying for the victims of Hiroshima Day every year.. one year, we spent our anniversary in hawaii and took part in a BON DANCE celebration .. blessings to all on my anniversary day!

    • I want to get married on the beach too (somewhere like Hawaii) and I was born in New Jersey! Coincidentally, August 6th is/was my Dad’s birthday! Also coincidentally, I am IN LOVE with a man with the same last name as yours, Kasian. The number 36 years is also coincidental, as this is our age. Yep, getting married would certainly be a blessing. You are very fortunate! I guess I’m just a hopeless romantic… living with reckless abandon.
