Still, as one born after Hiroshima I can testify that a small Hampshire township, however large the number of names of the fallen on its village-green war memorial, is more than a world away from any unpleasantness on the European mainland or the high or narrow seas that lie between. Hiroshima is John Hersey's book about hte dropping of the first atomic bomb on Japan. This book personalized the event for me, because it follows the lifes of several people after the bomb.

Hersey notes that “even a theory was comforting that day.” Because President Truman did not warn the citizens of Hiroshima before the bomb was dropped, either through official channels or by dropping leaflets by plane through the city, the citizens had no idea of America’s nuclear capabilities. Priests were crucial in tending to the victims of the Hiroshima bombing (although Hersey doesn’t really talk about the contributions of non-Christian religious leaders). Notice, also, that the devastation of Hiroshima traumatizes all Hiroshimans, even young, innocent children like Toshio.

Harmony of the Seas offers the mostly dive-less "The Fine Line," though the much longer show offers significantly more acrobatic dancing, aerial.   It’s also the shortest of the main bridges. Not so Kurushima-Kaikyō, linking Imabari and Oshima islands. It’s the world’s longest suspension bridge, composed of three separate suspension bridges, six towers, and four anchorages. It looks like San Francisco’s Bay Bridge, and it makes for an impressive photograph.
