throwback thursday - TBT #16

august 6th, a day in history that humanity never should, and never will, forget.

american forces used the atomic bomb for the first time on august 6th 1945, completely destroying the city of hiroshima and killing hundreds of thousands of people, both immediately and later gradually, as a result of radiation exposure.
nagasaki would be bombed three days later on august 9th.

one can only hope that never again will the world witness such a horror, even though the kind of news that we wake up to each day leaves us with less and less hope for humanity.

make love, not war.
hiroshima bombing, august 6th 1945
