Think Peaceful Thoughts

Today is the anniversary of the dropping of an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima, Japan. At right is a photo of a watch that belonged to Kengo Futagama, aged 59. Futagama was bicycling across a bridge 1,600 meters from the hypocenter of the blast, on his way to work. He was able to make it home, although horribly burned. He died of his injuries 16 days later.
This post is not about who was right or wrong, and what the use of atomic force may or may not have led to. This post is about remembering that we are all works of the same creator, and we all are responsible towards each other.
Pray for peace, people, everywhere.
