Photographer's Note

A Memorial to a child (Sadako Sasaki)who was less than one kilometer from Ground Zero, in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945! A day all men on earth should never forget and pray to there God that it will never again be duplicated! "On the ground moments before the blast it was a calm and sunny Monday morning and by 8:15 the city was alive with activity -- soldiers doing their morning calisthenics, commuters on foot or on bicycles, groups of women and children working outside to clear firebreaks." (Quotation taken from: Office of History and Heritage Resources, publication: F. G. Gosling, The Manhattan Project: Making the Atomic Bomb (DOE/MA-0001; Washington: History Division, Department of Energy, January 1999), 51-53. To ALL those who never made it through that day, especially the children, I am sorry! I was only 6 years old and had nothing to do with what happened, but I am sorry just the same, but sorry just doesn't help, if we learned nothing!
