Seventy-six years ago, on August 6, 1945, during World War II (1939-45), an American B-29 bomber dropped the world’s first deployed atomic bomb over the Japanese city of Hiroshima. The explosion wiped out 90 percent of the city and immediately killed 80,000 people; tens of thou-sands more would later die of radiation exposure. Three days later, a second B-29 dropped another A-bomb on Nagasaki, killing an estimated 40,000 (www.history.com). Contact the GNH Peace Council about plans for the annual commemoration at (203) 387-0370 or email: grnhpeacecouncil@gmail.com. *
