Working for Peace

Remembering Hiroshima

75 years ago, on August 6, 1945, the United States dropped the first of two atomic bombs on the small island nation of Japan – the only time a nuclear weapon of mass destruction has been deliberately used to annihilate an entire city. Three days later, on August 9, 1945, the U.S. dropped another atomic bomb on another city in Japan, a mere 261 miles — less than the distance between Los Angeles and Las Vegas — from the first.

Because of the overwhelming devastation and resulting chaos, the actual mortality of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki will never be known. However, the latest figures indicate the number killed in Hiroshima is now over 192,000 (either instantly or within the following few months) and over 75,000 in Nagasaki. This is more than six times the number of women, children and men living in Culver City, where I reside. In addition to the deaths, over seven decades later, untold numbers of survivors and their children continue to suffer from radiation and other after effects.

Watch these 75th anniversary commemorations and learn more about nuclear disarmament and working for peace.

A virtual commemoration of the 75th anniversary remembrance of the American bombing of Hiroshima. Presented by Arkansas WAND, Arkansas Coalition for Peace and Justice,  Arkansas Peace Week, Pax Christi Little Rock  and students from Pulaski Academy, the event is a reminder of the urgency to rid the world of living under the threat of nuclear annihilation.
