On August 6, 1945, an American B-29 bomber flew over Hiroshima, Japan. The uranium 235 bomb, named Little Boy, exploded at 8:16 a.m. In an instant 80,000 to 140,000 people were killed and 100,000 more were seriously injured. The blast wave shattered windows for a distance of ten miles and was felt as far away as 37 miles. Hiroshima had disappeared under a thick, churning foam of flames and smoke.
Thousands of nukes are still a threat to life on earth, and Russian nuclear subs are patrolling off our coast right now. We need to remember the tragedy and continue to work toward a day when we can live in peace.
A good way to remember is to participate in a fresh Anti-Nuke Push.
