Ban The Bomb
65 years ago today, Monday, August 6, 1945, at 8:15 AM, the Japanese city of Hiroshima was devastated when the atomic bomb "Little Boy" was dropped by the United States B-29 Enola Gay, instantly killing an estimated 80,000 people. By the end of the year, injury and radiation brought total casualties to 90,000-140,000. The United States is the only nation that has ever used atomic weapons in warfare. Let's make sure it's the last.
