I will post one last thing to this thread. As a child of the 1950s educational system we not not told the whole story about Hiroshima and Nagasaki. A few facts about the losses were left out or perhaps even covered up. We were lead to believe that the only people killed were Japanese. No mention was made about Prisoners of War in each city or "forced laborers" from Japanese occupied territories plus Japanese Americans who happened to also be there. On August 6th and 9th we should all take a moment to reflect upon and honor the memories of those who perished there.
