Barack Obama Came To Hiroshima

Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima, Japan

Today, Barack Obama came to Hiroshima with Shinzo Abe. He speeched made a speech about a peace and the world where it doesn't exist without nuclear weapons for seventeen minutes. It was the first sitting time for US president to visit Hiroshima. In his speech, he used Hibakusha as a keyword. He said,

That is a future we can choose, a future in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare, but as the start of our own moral awakening.

Actualy, I'm a third generation of Hibakusha. My patermal grandmother was bombed by the atomic bomb called a little boy. So I'm glad to get the feeling he might cared my grandmother.
