On 73rd Anniversary of Hiroshima Atomic Bombing

Sometimes, we should forget our past. However, we should never forget this.

Each country or region has a history, whether it is relatively new or remarkably old. Many people, including myself, do not have sound knowledge of the history of their own country.

But I think the day of Atomic Bomb was dropped, 6th August 1945, directly on the people in Hiroshima by another side of people for the first time in the history, should be the one every human being must not forget forever. The day the ugliest consequence of the hatred and selfish causes called war finally brought a monster and killed hundred-thousands of innocent people instantly. 

We swore, "We will never repeat the mistake." I want to believe the message was meant for every person on the earth. The memorial stone (epitaph) curving the phrase stands by the fountain in Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park. I hope you will visit here when you are in Hiroshima and find the inscription, and think about the meaning of peace and how to act on it.

Sadly, though, I feel the memory is fading each year. All we need is to keep remembering, and talking.
