Today is August 6, the day that the first atomic bomb attacked Hiroshima 63 years ago.
I know there’s a lot of people who think the bomb saved many people being dead.
I know there’s a lot of people who think the bomb made Asian people free from Japan.
I know we, Japanese, did a lot of bad things, absolutely bad things during the war.
I hope, I wish only one thing.
If you mention about the bomb, please know about what had happened under the bomb.
I don’t mean that the Hibakusya have been more suffering than the people who were suffered from Japan.
No, I couldn’t say such a thing.
I just think that the bomb already had a big effect on Hiroshima and Nagasaki even 63 years ago.
I just guess that the effect of nuclear weapons must be bigger today.
And, we, human beings, couldn’t stop making mistakes.
We would make mistakes even if we are very, very careful.
Then, I think there might be a possibility that YOU would be hurt by a nuclear weapon if your country keeps nuclear weapons.
Then, I think you might need to determine to be suffered from a nuclear weapon if you give your support for keeping nuclear weapons in your country.
If your country doesn’t keep any nuclear weapons right now, but still there’s a possibility that your country will keep nuclear weapons someday, if there’s a nuclear weapons on the Earth.
Then, I think that the knowledge about what had happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki gives you a information about what will happen if a nuclear weapon explode where you are today or in the future.
I wish you who read this post try to see from this point of view about what nuclear weapons are.
