Hiroshima, 66 Years Ago

During the final stages of World War II in 1945, the United States conducted two atomic bombings against the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan, the first on August 6, 1945 and the second on August 9, 1945. These two events are the only use of nuclear weapons in war to date.

My father walked the "streets" of Hiroshima about eight months later...he still can't describe what he saw.
