70 years today the first atomic bomb was dropped in Hiroshima, creating a vision hell we should be thankful few of us can properly imagine. 70 years ago today, somewhere between 70,000 and 140,000 people were killed by the most terrifying weapon mankind has ever made. On the 15th of this month it will be 70 years to the day since the second atomic bomb was dropped in Nagasaki, where anywhere between 40,000 and 80,000 people were killed. The lucky victims were instantly disintegrated, and the unlucky ones survived the initial blast only to die lost in the rubble, or died in agony days-months-years later due to the radiation poisoning. The testimonies of the survivors, their stories, are heart-breaking, enough to make you cry. If no one has heard those stories, you should. They are incredible, and horrifying. Hopefully we'll never see another Hiroshima or Nagasaki again. I thought it would be nice to have something to honour the memories of the dead.
