LOVE and Let us NEVER forget…
Today August 9, 1945 was the second time a nuclear bomb was used in war… the first time was August 6, 1945.
The following is what Harry S. Truman had to say…
I realize the tragic significance of the atomic bomb... It is an awful responsibility which has come to us... We thank God that it has come to us, instead of to our enemies; and we pray that He may guide us to use it in His ways and for His purposes.
—President Harry S. Truman, August 9, 1945
This is what I have to say…
WHAT SHITE! And what right?
Within the first two to four months of the bombings, the acute effects killed 90,000–166,000 people in Hiroshima and 60,000–80,000 in Nagasaki. 60% died from flash or flame burns, 30% from falling debris and 10% from other causes. In both cities, most of the dead were civilians.
These bombs had no rules and no limits… they killed women, children, babies, elderly, and everything else living in the area.
Below is the link to “Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki” on Wikipedia… I realize it is a lot to read but… please take the time to read this! Remember if it had happened to you or to your family you would NOT want the world to forget! Please don’t forget!
This was the very same thing as Hitler was trying to do…. it’s called genocide! And it was done by something called a peoples government..
You don’t have to read this because it really is too long but follow the link and just scroll down the page…. I think you will be shocked. I was
And think about the world around us right now… is this going on? What about the starving people in Somalia? If no help is sent isn’t that the same as genocide?
This is an excerpt from “The New York Times” dated today…
Food Crisis and Famine
In 2011 Somalia experienced a full-blown famine in several parts of the country, with millions of people on the brink of starvation and aid deliveries complicated by the fact that militants control the famine zones.
The Shabab, which controls southern Somalia, forced out Western aid organizations in 2010, yanking away the only safety net just when one of the worst droughts in 60 years struck. When the scale of the catastrophe became clear, with nearly three million Somalis in urgent need and more than 10 million at risk, the militants relented and invited aid groups back. But few rushed in because of the complications and dangers of dealing with the militants.
American government rules banning material aid to the Shabab complicate aid efforts. Aid officials have worried that paying so-called taxes to the militants who control needy areas could expose them to criminal prosecution.
The Somalis are not waiting. Tens of thousands, possibly even hundreds of thousands, are now fleeing to Kenya and Ethiopia for help. The Shabab is blocking starving people from fleeing the country and setting up a cantonment camp where it is imprisoning displaced people who were trying to escape Shabab territory.
The full story…
And with all of this I sit in front of my TV and watch riots in the UK… what is wrong with people? Haven’t we learned anything? I hope everyone is safe tonight in the UK… to my contacts… be careful and I'm thinking of you all.
If we look to history we can maybe avoid making the same mistakes again!
I have learned so many things so far in my 365 and in life… so many things I never knew and sadly I have to admit I never cared about knowing before but now my eyes are opening and I don’t always like what I see. I don’t want to see things alone… I am always learning. Maybe everybody else already knows all of this and I'm the last to know. But if I'm not, and one person reads this and learns something new or maybe their eyes are opened too… like mine are. Well that would make me happy and make me feel like I did something.
I ask you…. Don’t forget and don’t be blinded… and don’t be fooled!
But more than anything else I ask…
Love! Everyone and everything!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
