It’s Hiroshima Day.
It’s hard for us to really wrap our minds around what happened when the nuclear bombs fell on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Equally hard to wrap our minds around is the unbelievable nuclear proliferation that has happened since those awful human tragedies.
When I got to college I had never been much of a ‘joiner’, but my freshman year I decided to join the ‘Peace Through Disarmament Club’. It sounds almost quaint now…kinda like the Geneva Conventions. I’ve tried not to lose my idealism on this issue, and to continue to imagine a world where the ability to destroy ourselves as a species doesn’t factor into the equation.
On that note, enjoy the video clip from True Majority. They have a great knack for putting things into perspective.
