Today is the 70th anniversary of the mass murder of more than 80,000 people, including approximately 60,000 civilians, at Hiroshima. If you want to read a book on the actual effect of the bomb that day, here it is. If you are among those who claim it was morally permissible to save lives that would have been lost in an invasion, and that Truman didn't know how horrific the weapon would be, I wonder how you would defend the bombing of Nagasaki?
As it happens, it is also the feast day of Our Lord's Transfiguration on Mount Tabor. This article from the UK Daily Mail shows the transfiguration of Hiroshima today.
