It was seventy years ago today, and one 99 year old veteran refuses to give up on his lifeʻs mission to make sure nuclear weapons are never used again. His story on NBC.
NHK Japan has a number of programs related to Hiroshima and Nagasaki and anniversary events here.
This opinion piece on CNN says that our nuclear policy today is “essentially the hope that our good luck will continue. This policy must change.”
I personally always pause on this day to reflect on the suffering that occurred at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and to think what I can do to prevent tragedies like these from happening again. By some random stroke of fate or something, my Company, IMI – International Medcom, was incorporated on this date 29 years ago. Every day we work to make the world safer, to reduce the risks associated with the Nuclear Age. Given the new cold war and escalating nuclear arms race, I think itʻs important. I hope personally hope everyone will try to do something. Anything we can do to increase trust, friendship and cooperation, and reduce access to sensitive nuclear materials can help.
Good thoughts and best wishes from our staff here to all that have been affected by Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nuclear testing, and the legacy sites that will take decades to clean up. Letʻs work together to keep these cycles from repeating and thus benefit the future generations in all countries, cultures and walks of life..
