"No one else should ever suffer as we did"
An atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki City at 11:02 a.m. on August 9th, 1945. (Hiroshima; at 8:15 a.m. August 6th, 1945) About 74,000 people died in the year following the bombing. (Hiroshima; 150,000 people) Survivors still suffer from the after-effects of radiation even today.

On this day, The B-29 bomber Enola Gay's first target was Kokura City.
I was born in Kokura, my both parents and my both grandparents too. If an atomic bomb was dropped to Kokura City of this day, my grandparents were dead. This means I wasn't even born if an atomic bomb was dropped to Kokura City. This is why I have special feelings for Nagasaki.


In Japan, kids have to go to school on this day during summer breaks. They learn lessons from war/atomic bomb. On this day, I used to watch the movie named "Hadashi no Gen (Barefoot Gen)" at the school every year when I was a kid. I think the movie has turned to "Hotaru no haka (Grave of Fireflies)" around recently though.

Every year on these day, a memorial service for the war dead is held in both cities. And today(August 15th) is the anniversary of the end of World War II. Here's the moving speech by Hiroshima's mayor, he gave a speech at Hiroshima Peace Memorial Ceremony this year.

I know the fact that there're still Asian people who look at the atomic bombs positively. I know there're different opinion in Japan/Asia/Europe/United States.

President Obama, who understands well that the US is also in danger of nuclear terrorism, made a remarkable speech in Prague on April 5th when North Korea launched the rocket. In the speech he mentioned the US is the only nation that has used a nuclear weapon and has a moral responsibility to act as a leader.

I think it would be difficult to do it. But I just wish people would learn that war is not the answer.

Peace begins in your heart.
