Today, August 6 is the 62nd anniversary of the United States dropping the A-Bomb on Hiroshima, killing hundreds of thousands of people, and ushering the world into the age of WMD's, as they have been labeled by the Bush administration.
In honor of those who died on that day and suffered and died in the years that followed, I post this image as a reminder to not follow our leaders blindly into battle, sing hymns of patriotism, or be too quick to think that we are the keepers of some sacred legacy. This event is also part of our legacy to the world. Consider that we are all human and all the same. And for that matter, not much different than the rest of the planet's species.
