Today is the 77th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, Japan by the United States effectively bringing to an end World War II. A second bomb however was dropped on Nagasaki 3 days thereafter. Japan subsequently surrendered on August 15th 1945.
An event commemorating this grave anniversary was held today at Green Lake in Seattle.

Candle-lit lanterns will bring messages of peace and hope in this annual event that honors victims of the 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and all victims of violence. Lanterns will be provided and personalized with calligraphy by members of the Beikuku Shodo Kenkyu Kai (Japanese) and the Gurudwara Singh Sabha of Washington and Khalsa Gurmat School (Gurmukhi). The event will take place just south of the Seattle Public Theater (aka Bathhouse Theater), on Green Lake’s NW shore, at West Green Lake Drive North and Stone Ave North.​

Had Japan's warlords "effectively ended" their efforts, the Fat Man would not have been used. Even after Nagasaki was destroyed, they still refused to surrender and their excuse was they wanted to protect the Mikado. Then HE delivered a speech surrendering and they had no way to deny the act.

They weren't victims. They were much needed collateral damage in order to force them to surrender.

Yeah America is so great when it massacres defenseless women and children of a nation trying to surrender. We are so proud!

Do you think the people of Ukraine are not victims and are just collateral damage as well? Why or why not?

And yet somehow we think we have the god given right to tell other nations they are not allowed to have such weapons when we are the only nation to ever use one.

The problem is they weren’t trying to surrender. They were trying to get terms. That’s not surrender, that’s negotiation. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were our response to those negotiations.

You’re uninformed like most Americans. Japan had been trying to surrender for months.

What happens when all this junk sinks? Will Green Lake get any greener?
