Deeply heartbreaking, my whole life this incident has been with me in heart. A harrowing documentary covering the experiences of the members of the crew responsible (without real insight) into the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The men share their shock and horror at what happened that day. Although they talk about their personal pain and the loss of over 18,500 of their crew eventually to varying forms of cancer they’re is no mention of the devastating deaths of 129,000-226,000 in Hiroshima and Nagasaki (half of which occurred on the first day). Although there are no words to acknowledge this we can see that the pain in their eyes tells the story, their hearts haunted forever. Human kind haunted forever I for one do not want to see another moment like this, the depth of pain and suffering humans can inflict upon each other is so painfully sad. This documentary although I’m sure shocking needs to be seen in the hope that it is a real deterrent. The hurt hearts that hurt other hearts leaves mine speechless and I have a deep wish for the freedom of suffering, particularly from anger which when not seen through eyes or hearts with wisdom only continues to cause further anger. Sad sad day. As an aside: the day of the boxing day Tsunami although natural in occurrence left me with a similar speechlessness... mass disappearance in an instant, unchangeable, deeply profound.
