The U.S. government atomic-bombed Hiroshima fifty four years ago.

Here are some thoughts:

– My 1999 visit to Hiroshima was very sad. Here I am adding to the collection of peace cranes at Hiroshima’s memorial: http://bit.ly/st2yn.

– Hiroshima’s horrors are highlighted by the ash mound of tens of thousands of victims whose remains were not claimed: http://bit.ly/gnS4N .

– A huge number of survivors of Hiroshima carry/ied deep physical and emotional wounds. Young Sadako Sasaki was one of the leukemia victims.

– Here is more on Sadako and her memorial in Hiroshima: http://www.city.hiroshima.jp/shimin/heiwa/crane.html .

– Here is the Hiroshima peace site page: http://bit.ly/13NBKj . Na Mu Myo Ho Ren Ge Kyo. http://bit.ly/14TPNz .
