There is something I have observed as I have grown, and that is, if we value our own lives and generations after us, we must learn from others to better our future. There are many things from which we can learn throughout our lives. In particular, we can learn from the past, present, and our future generations.
In the past we have had many horrific tragedies including the Holocaust which occurred during World War II in 1945, and the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. The pain and suffering that the Jewish people had to endure while they were in concentration camps during the Holocaust was immeasurable. They were included in experimental drug testing which had life threatening effects. They had to go through the pain of being separated from their family members and friends. Also, nobody can possibly forget about the Nazi gas chambers which killed millions upon millions of innocent Jewish people. The bombing of Hiroshima was also another terrible tragedy. We can learn from the pain which the people in Hiroshima had to endure. There is not one humane reason why these people had to be bombed with a nuclear device. The only reason America bombed Hiroshima was because Japan attacked Pearl Harbour. It was not self-defence. It was a chain reaction. We, the world as a whole, must never bomb each other with nuclear weapons again. The nuclear weapons we have today are much stronger than the ones used way back in 1945. If this did happen, the result could be the destruction of the entire planet. We are not stupid enough to do that, or are we? Some of us must have learned something from those two mistakes. If nobody did learn anything, then you will be taught right now: We must rethink and reconsider how our actions will affect others, before we carry them out. We must do this with deep thought and concern. If we do this, we can strive to work together for a future which excludes torture, discrimination, and nuclear weapons.... [continues]
