Hiroshima Peace Memorial

We took a little weekend trip to Hiroshima and visited the Atomic Bomb Dome and Peace Park. The park was beautiful with all the fall leaves and colors. I loved that the focus was on "peace" and honoring the lives of those that died in the Atomic Bomb. 

It was also a really sad and heavy place. . .  It was hard to see the images and read stories from the attack and aftermath years later of the nuclear bomb. It was eye opening and made me at moments sad to be American. I'm grateful though for the peace we have now and friendship, and hope this history never repeats.
