Hiroshima Peace Memorial

Posted by msrb on September 12, 2007

A living proof that steel structures don’t pulverize into fine dust, or self-mutilate, even when an atom bomb is detonated above them!

Hiroshima Peace Memorial, commonly known as the Atomic Bomb Dome or A-Bomb Dome, part of the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.

A-Bomb Dome

The atomic bomb codenamed “Little Boy” was detonated almost directly above the building (the hypocenter was 150 meters away) on 6 August 1945. The building has been preserved in the same state as immediately after the bombing, and now serves as the reminder of nuclear devastation and as a symbol of hope for world peace and elimination of all nuclear weapons.

    Up until recently schizophrenics and psychopaths were held incommunicado in mental asylums usually for electric shock treatment to keep them from harming themselves and others.

    I think that the A-Bomb Dome is a good idea for a peace memorial. No, I don’t believe it was justified to wipe out an entire city filled with innocent people. People that eat, breath, and live just like the rest of us. Our problems probably could have been handled differently. But there is no reason to do it again. If i had my way all nuclear weapons, (including our own) would be disposed of. There is no reason to have enough WMD to blow up the world multiple times over. So yes I do believe it is a great idea. It shows that they hope for peace. They had their time out, its time to give them another chance.
