Everything could be gone in a flash

08/06/1945 Just another day in Japan for most. Children were at school. Mothers were on their way to the parachute/textile factories. Men were outside working on the roads. However, in one moment (8:15AM) in a brilliant flash of yellow and blue, hundreds of thousands of lives were changed forever.

You can read survivor's accounts of that day. They all basically retell similar stories of hell on earth.

I hope that there will never be another Hiroshima or Nagasaki. Not on friends nor foes. I don't wish that upon anyone. It was one of the biggest crimes in all of human history.
