Obama in Hiroshima: “Death From The Sky” a “Moral Awakening”; Calls For “World Without” Nuclear Weapons

realclearpolitics.comPresident Obama makes a historic visit to Hiroshima and called for a world without nuclear weapons in an address delivered at a memorial in the Japanese city. Obama called the bombing a “moral awakening.”

“The world was forever changed here, but today the children of this city will go through their day in peace. What a precious thing that is,” Obama said Friday. “It is worth protecting, and then extending to every child. That is a future we can choose, a future in which Hiroshima and Nagasaki are known not as the dawn of atomic warfare but as the start of our own moral awakening.”
