Today is our first full day in Osaka. We had to wake up at 7:30am so we can catch a train to Hiroshima. Once we arrived in Hiroshima. We took a big boat to a small little island on Hiroshima. I had the opportunity to see lots and lots of deer they were all over the place. Hiroshima is their home and they just walk around with you. It was kind of gross to see poop everywhere. But luckily I dodged it so there wasn’t a problem. We walked all around to we finally made it to the temple which was high up the hill. It was real beautiful. Truly a eyeopener for me.
Later that day we went to Hiroshima Peace Museum and Memorial. I learned so much more about the atomic bomb that hit Hiroshima August 6, 1945. I had no idea really all that took place during this tragedy. I got to see clothing items, hair, fingernails, lunch boxes, back packs that were all left behind and were due to the atomic bomb. So many people lost their lives that day. That is why we must fight for world peace and put a stop to nuclear weapons. R.I.P to all those who died on that tragic day.
