Little Boy Don’t Cry
the first atomic bombAt 8:15 am on August 6, 1945 in the history of mankind exploded over Hiroshima. This bomb was called “Little Boy”. President Truman didn’t truly grasp the magnitude of this devastation. He thoughtthe bomb was dropped at a military target called Hiroshima. He also statedthe bomb was dropped to save thousands of young American lives.
That day close to 200,000 innocent civilians were massacred. Many Americans compare Hiroshima with Pearl Harbour. The Japanese navy struck the strategic military target in which 2,335 military personnel casualties were reported and 68 civilians were killed. The motives and the outcome of these two attacks were intrinsically different.
To offer an alternative solution to armed conflict and war, phrases from the African American pacifist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. are embroidered on the back of this T-shirt. “…all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, …man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation.The foundation of such a method is love.”
