Day 26: WHY?

Hiroshima Statue


The train rides up the Bay of Hiroshima. The ride was enjoyable and the surroundings were tranquil and full of life. What would I see in Hiroshima? The evil of mankind in its ugliest form. As we exited the train station, to our surprise, there were no great signs, Ground Zero This Way. In fact, there were no signs written in English. Asking a few locals, they kindly pointed in a certain direction, without speaking; they knew our destination.

45 Now from the sixth hour

there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.

46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice,saying,

“Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is to say,

“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Matthew 45-46 KJV

Hiroshima is a beautiful city, busy with people, buildings, and trees. In fact, the city is very interesting and full of life. The Castle of Hiroshima looked incredible! We took a ride to the top of a skyscraper and looked over to view the beautiful bay and the valley. The people were so kind to us, and proud that we were interested in their city.

We then came upon a site I will never forget. There were groups of young elementary school children sitting together; drawing what would seem to be a church like building. It was the A-bomb Dome. The building’s dome was in ruins; a skeleton of its former self.

The children laughed and smiled at us. They waved at us. This in fact, was the temple, right below the airburst in Hiroshima. Ground Zero. We walked across the bridge to go to Peace Park, the site of the Hiroshima Memorial. We came in contact with many people.

The people of our own age (twenties and thirties), waved at us and looked at us with curiosity. Only in the sense that something bad had happened near came from the older generation, with a few glances of fear and anger.

It was hard to believe that this was the place, where people were burned from an unknown explosion, and where people had jumped into the river only to discover that the water was boiling.

As we approached, there was a statue of a father holding his wife and child looking up to the sky, seemingly asking,

“Why? How could this happen?” The tears streamed down my face as I realized that on this very spot, innocent people had lost their lives, and had vanished from this earth without mercy, or reason. We must learn to live in peace and to love one another.

We are all brothers and sisters.


Blessings and Godspeed,
