73 years ago the world woke on this day to the chilling news of the horrific, cruel and brutal mass destruction of lives and livelihoods in Hiroshima. This day must be remembered as a sad day for humanity. How some humans without the slightest feeling of empathy could wreak and destroy the lives of so many innocent fellow humans through the use of a weapon of mass destruction, the atomic bomb. Have we learnt the lesson of this sad event?
Have the pain and suffering of so many of our fellow humans touched us deeply enough to proclaim 'enough of such killing, such cruelty, such brutality, such atrocity, such destruction'? From the killing fields of Cambodia, Bosnia, Rwanda, Congo, Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Gaza and many other places, the increased militarization, and the development of deadlier weapons of mass destruction, it is apparent that the lessons of 6 August 1945 in Hiroshima and 9 August 1945 in Nagasaki have not been heeded.
