Hiroshima

Sixty two years ago tomorrow, the crew of an American B-29 bomber  The Enola Gay dropped the first of two atomic bombs on Japan 
Few who witnessed the attacks remain, yet the destruction is etched in human memory. More powerful nuclear weapons followed Fat Man and Little Boy, but none have been used in war. The 62th anniversary of the bombings prompts reflections on one of history’s most dramatic moments.
As a result of the blast, heat and ensuing fires, the city of Hiroshima was leveled and some 90,000 people in it perished that day. The world’s second test of a nuclear weapon demonstrated conclusively the awesome power of nuclear weapons for killing and maiming. Schools were destroyed and their students and teachers slaughtered. Hospitals with their patients and medical staffs were obliterated. The bombing of Hiroshima was an act of massive destruction of a civilian population, the destruction of an entire city with a single bomb.

 

I hope  i dont hurt u all by showing this  pic…But it  was the hard reality.

    That was the blackest day in world history !! But unfortunately it cannot be blacked out and will continue to haunt forever !! We do not learn lessons from the past…previous mistakes and continue the bloodshed !! The picture is horrific…but a gruesome reality !!
     
    About the child abusers…….they should be given a slow torture,not instant bang bang….
    Abusers are often stoned to death in many Islamic countries!! This does discourage the abusers or may be not !! Honour plays a huge role and women are the bearer of this…the onus lies on the woman !!If they suspect the wife/daughter/sister to be having an affair …it is taken as a dishonouring the family name…which has to be cleared…..often resulting in the woman being murdered by her father/brother/husband/son!! "honour killings" as they are called !! Its also a known fact,especially in the tribal belts of the two countries,girls as young as 11 or 12 are given away in marriage to men who are old enough to be their dads/gdads !! Isnt that child abuse too??? I feel very strongly about this and could go on and on…….:D
    You lv on the 17th…right?? !! God Bless.sweeti !!
    Have a grt day and tc,
    Love
    Sonia

    Childabuse, it  can happen everywhere, even in your neighbourhood.  And so many people close there eyes,  turn their head in the other direction, don’t dare or are afraid to talk about it. It’s a shame, the worst and most cruel thing that can happen to a child  that can’t defend itself.
     
    And what to think about other abuse, as for instance abuse of women in many many forms ? Women who are not allowed to speak , not allowed to handle their lives, not allowed to marry persons they realy love ? Women who are exploited as prostitutes, women who are abused physicaly and menthaly ?
     
    Even  today, in this very second, in this age of modern thinking, of fast communication around the globe, in a time people think they know each other, even people here on spaces, women and men, so many people are suffereing from abuse. Think and pray for them.

    Hey Sweetie. The pilot of the Enola Gay is still around — nearly deaf at age 89, but still making no excuses for dropping the bomb! Much love from Alabama. Mitch

     Hello Sweeti,
     
    Thank you for your kind words. I still feel bad that my Friends are being targetted by these "people." Maybe someday people will learn to live together in peace. From everything I have read, things will only get worse – from what I have experienced, things will continue to get worse. If I had realized how bad the world would be today, I would have remained single. I would not wish the apparent future on anyone. Hiroshima & Nagasaki were the worst events ever to happen. Yet people would rather ignore the numbers of people and animals that died. Then those who suffered for days and years afterwards always in pain both mentally and physically.
     
    Today (9 Aug) is the anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki. http://www.exploratorium.edu/nagasaki/mainn.html has some pictures after it was bombed. This site has a lot to it, including some personal recollections about the bombing of Nagasaki.
     
    Peace, Love, & Blessings.

    Hi!
    Great tragedy live  thru history to remind us what we must never repeat.
    Unfortunately, humankind is so full of greed, hatred, and deceipt that there will always be people repeating what they must never do.
    Pray for those who suffered, many more are still suffering the aftermath generations later, that’s the next best thing we can do.
    Be well,
    Billy

    Hello Sweeti! It feels great to be back and visiting spaces. Your blog entry is really thought provoking and deep. The tragedies of the past cannot be forgotten, especially one as great as the Hiroshima bombing. However we human beings fail to learn from history and violence has become a way of life.I will return to your space again, and read it through in detail. Hope you are well. Thanks for leaving sweet messages for me. I was a bit busy with shifting my house, but that’s all over now.See you again, sometime soon!Love, Ruma.

    Hello Sweeti,
     
    Just dropping by to see if everything is okay.

    Just to let you know, my govt. connections are wrapping up the spaces troublemakers!
    They’ve got the goods on them this time. I told everyone you could count on me to guard
    your sites. Its not good to mess with an ex-Army Ranger!
     
    Later,
