Dad's memories of the atomic bomb
Writing on the Saturday before column day, I recall that Aug. 6 is an anniversary. It is the 66th anniversary of the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.
Today, Aug. 9, is also a 66th anniversary. It was on this date that the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. In a sense, being one of the “baby boomers” it seems to me that it was “just yesterday” that people were still talking about the then not-so-distant in the past events that ended World War II.
