Today is the day that 59 years ago a mushroom cloud rose into the skies above a town in Japan called Hiroshima. It rained death to a degree that mankind found unimaginable.
Three days later, it was Nagasaki that witnessed the same.
We have been living in fear and awe of the atomic bomb since then.
I can only wonder what would have gone through the minds of Paul Tibbets and Charles Sweeney after they realised the destruction that they had unleashed.
Did they ever repent ( though they were just following orders)?
