did you say a prayer?

Yesterday and Thursday (Aug 6 & Aug 9) mark the 62nd anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. the US used the atom bomb on two Japanese cities to end the war.

it's estimated in less than 10 seconds over 100,000 people died. both times.

sudden death for many innocents. they never got a chance to prepare for that final moment. may they rest in peace.

and may we be spared the unprepared death. may we live our lives to the fullest every day as though we are ready to leave at any given moment.

Great post. Sometimes I don't think we pray near enough.
