"Little Boy"

The crew of the Enola Gay in their "manly" shorts

65 years ago today, after refusing the terms of surrender laid out to them by Allied forces, the United States of America dropped the atomic bomb known as "Little Boy" on the defenseless Japanese city of Hiroshima. It was followed 3 days later by another atomic bomb called "Fat Man" on the city of Nagasaki.

Lest we forget:

Did you ever see ten thousand dead bodies in one shot?
Well, this is it.


Now. This bombed out building is all that remains of that day
and it stands as a Memorial to all that were lost.
