Free from Evil, Free to Pursue Peace

Hiroshima 1945, Hiroshima 2010

August 6, 1945 was not infamous. It was necessary.

August 6, 1945 did not end the war with Japan. It took a second bomb to do that and, even then, the warmongers argued among themselves for several days whether to surrender. In the end, the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki set Japan free to pursue peace.

The evil has since left Japan and moved elsewhere in the world. It will not go quietly, the stronger we let it get, the harder it will be to stop it.

First step: Recognize it. FAIL. Yeah, we're kinda lost now.
