We take a moment from our usual travel post to remember the events of 70 years ago when at least 190,000 people died when U.S. nuclear bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

There is a saying that “Each time history repeats itself, the price goes up.” So, while we remember the horrors of 70 years past, we live with the hope of a world with NO nuclear weapons.
