Black Rain

Today, August 6 is memorial day of atomic bomb. Two Atomic bombs were dropped 64 years ago at Hiroshima and Nagasaki at August 9.

Almost Japanese students have visited Hiroshima in school excursion. I went to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum in junior high school. I have heard a story for tragedy of victims (Hibakusha 被爆者) and seen horrible pictures. Everyone will think that all atomic bombs must be abandoned after visiting this museum.

Black rain (黒い雨) fell after dropping atomic bomb. It was rain of death. When I read a Japanese novel "Black Rain" , I knew the fact and it was shocking for me.
We should know that some survivors or descendants are tortured by the hangover even now .

I hope all countries have no atomic bombs.

I agree completely. I hope that nuclear weapons are never used again. I also hope that people will not forget Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I believe that most people want peace and I hope that governments will work for peace and cooperation.
