I recently had the privilege of visiting the Hiroshima dome in Japan, my first time overseas!

This museum tells the haunting story of the first city to experience the terror of the atomic age. It not only tells the global story of what led to the dropping of the bomb, but also the chilling stories of those who were there, those who survived into later life, and those who only survived hours, days or weeks. Children, mothers, fathers.

It’s beyond comprehension that a 10 square kilometre area, and 75,000 people, can be incinerated in the blink of an eye.

They thought nothing would grow for 75 years. But, by the end of the year plants were sprouting again.

How we can ever believe such weapons are necessary is beyond me. A world without them would certainly be a better place.
