Yesterday was the 50th Anniversary of dropping the first atom bomb in Japan. I found it strange that this anniversary was being mentioned at all. The amount of destruction caused by the atom bomb was terrible, but I don't know that it needs to be brought back up. At some point you need to stop talking about the specific date and just focus on what good has come from the after affect, like trying to keep nuclear weapons from all countries now that we know how bad they are. And from the civilian nuclear programs that do help generate electricity in this world that is will eventually run out of oil. We don't stop and remember when Hitler took over, and that was the start of a lot more doom than dropping the nuclear bomb was.
