On this day, 70 years, ago my country exploded the atomic bomb over the city of Hiroshima. The shadow of that day has cast a darkness across time. So today let us remember and honor those who died on that terrible day. Also, let us think on the ways our nations and our world have grown together. Let us remember how we joined hands of friendship and solidarity in those years. Let us join hands again, in peace, and never allow another war such as that to occur. Let us hope that one day the shadow will be lifted, for our children, for our future,and for our world.

*Please, I would like it if people would share their feelings here instead of the usual comments. Thank you*

    It’s a moving piece Matt.

    I’ve always had mixed feeling about this day. It was an end to a horrible time. A time of genocide and hatred. But it was ended one of th most horrific ways with the loss of so many innocent and young lives. Just the loss of life and the atrocities one human could commit on another is staggering and makes the mind wretch.

    That fateful day was a double edged sword in my eyes.what remained after the detonation was truly sad yet hypnotic in a way that from then on we should know not to use such a weapon.there have been many gut wrentching wars since then none of them were ever even considered to have the end brought about in such a way.the shadows are a ray of hope that can force us as compassionate human beings to change how little war can make us feel towards our fellow man.

    All humankind history is history of wars. Almost all science researches was adapted for army and weapon in first head. Almost all miniatures on this site have swords, blades, guns and etc. Its not easy to take, but looks like war is our nature.
