Goodbye, August

A-Bomb Terror

by Yoshito Matsushige

Hiroshima, August 6th, 1945. The mushroom cloud, photographed approximately 1.6 miles from ground zero.

“Those of us who experienced all these hardships, we hope that such suffering will never be experienced again by our children and our grandchildren. Not only our children and grandchildren, but all future generations should not have to go through this tragedy. That is why I want young people to listen to our testimonies and to choose the right path, the path which leads to peace.”

Go, August. Go away.
