Writing - Man's inhumanity

Tomorrow is the 6th August and 71 years ago the US dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima in Japan. Three days later a second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Hundreds of thousands of civilians died.

A Bomb building

I visited Hiroshima in August 2007 and took the photos you will see on this post. The cold calculated murder, which are nuclear weapons, was exploded 600 feet above the building for maximum killing effect. Scientist worked that sick statistic out.

The Children's Monument

The children's monument is beautiful but a crying shame that it is necessary. There is a bell hanging beneath that you can ring as a prayer.

The War Memorial

In light of my efforts to add value to my posts for people who follow them, you may wonder where it is other than in shared sympathy for our fellow man. Well sometimes understanding where a writer stands on some issues helps to understand their work.

In contrast my good friends at Venture Galleries have been featuring my award with the East Texan Writer Guild and the Steele novel Flight into Secrecy which is quite topical as yet another theory about the missing MH370 has appeared in the news. The link to the feature is below.

The award chapter is included in the above blog as a sample of the whole book.
