Today is Hiroshima Day. Do you know why this day is so important? 8 year old Riddhima Misra, a Bookosmian from Kalyan tells us with a beautiful drawing why we should never take peace for granted.
She goes to Lodha World School.
Hiroshima Day is observed on August 6th every year. It aims to promote peace. This day is a reminder of the bombing attack on Hiroshima by the United States during World War II.
In 1945, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the city of Hiroshima. The nuclear bomb that was dropped in Hiroshima city was named ‘Little Boy’. Three days later, on August 9, the second bomb was dropped in Nagasaki. The nuclear bomb that was dropped in Nagasaki city was named ‘Fat man’.
The explosions killed thousands of people. Apart from the killings, the Japanese also suffered from terrible burns and radiation sickness.
Hiroshima day aims to raise awareness about the dangers of nuclear weapons and nuclear energy.
This sad incident reminds us to put peace first every day.
