A warm welcome to everyone present here. The subject I’m going to talk about today is Hiroshima Day.
Each of us is probably experiencing the greatest tragedy in the history of the destruction of human beings by other human beings.
This grotesque event took place on August 6, 1945, in the city of Hiroshima when another precedent was established that human beings are one of the most developed species on earth and at the same time one of the cruelest in the center You can kill your own guy without touching an eyelid by pressing a button.
How many times do we see that the monkey kills baby monkeys? How often do we see elephants killing other elephants? Anyone on this planet with the smallest amount of gray matter answers the previous questions negatively. However, it is extremely common and well known to see human beings killing other innocent human beings without having any fault whatsoever.
The Second World War is in full swing. Germany was strong with the Axis members, Japan and Italy. On the other hand, the forces of the alliance of the United States and Great Britain wanted to crush the German forces. At a time when nothing seemed easy, the allies adopted something really easy.
They decided to make a nuclear weapon and throw it in the heart of a bustling and thriving city full of innocent men, women and children just to demonstrate their virility and claim success in one of the commitments the most useless ever created by humanity which is war. .
To do this, they just hired scientists, made a bomb and threw it on the heads of thousands of innocent people who probably don’t know everything that would happen that day.
This fateful day not only destroyed an entire generation and many generations to come, but also marked the foundations of something called humanity and belief in it. It would take a stone instead of the heart to have mental composure and conscience to be able to execute a massive assault on this measure made in cold blood only to weaken political muscles.
Guess what? the greatest powers were not yet satisfied. They decide to launch another bomb a few days later, on August 9, 1945, in a neighboring town of Nagasaki. And finally, after killing thousands of people and ruining their fourth generation by thousands of others, they named this underground political gain as a chisel to shape a better future and the dead were called collateral damage.
These nuclear bombs not only destroyed many lives, but their harmful nuclear radiation continued to cause genetic mutations and diseases and birth defects in residents of neighboring regions, even today, after almost 70 years of the incident.
Hiroshima’s radioactive emissions are still active and will even be in the coming years creating birth defects and many other cancer diseases.
Hiroshima Day is most easily celebrated on August 6 in memory of those whose lives were affected by the nuclear bombings of that evil day. Each year, that day, people realize how humans can give up all of their so-called civilized learning, behavior, and conscience, and can easily take the lives of others in cold blood without blinking an eye.
This day is a day of self-assessment and hindsight. We have to take a moment to recognize that something is wrong with our civilization and where it is going. We have become so absorbed in personal games and selfishness that we have all given up on the principles of democracy and justice. Even today, in many aspects of life, we see people hurting others with materialistic gains.
Even after so many years of the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, nothing has essentially changed. It is only a matter of luck that the earth has not been destroyed in pieces yet. After this fateful incident, numerous international peace treaties were signed which resulted in the dismissal of the nuclear reserves. However, it was just a formality and an eyewash.
Every capable nation today has a good arsenal of nuclear weapons, and because of these nuclear weapons, indirect wars are fought mainly in underdeveloped and developing countries, which always results in tens of thousands of bloodshed of innocent people a day. .
On this day, we must all commit ourselves not to harm others and to work for the realization of a true nation.
