Survivor of world's first nuclear attack recounts Hiroshima bombing 75 years later

The U.S. dropped the world's first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan 75 years ago. A few days later, a second nuclear bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, forcing the Japanese to surrender and bringing an end to WWII. Ramy Inocencio met a survivor of the attack, who has spent three-quarters of a century on a quest to rid the world of nuclear weapons.

Feels weird to say “75th anniversary of the first nuclear attack”

She survived an atomic bomb, has reached beyond an age my grandparents did, & still looks 30 yrs younger than that.
I know this is not the point of the video, but dang she does NOT look 81. A beautiful woman doing beautiful things.

Amazing that anyone survived. She is one of the few who can truly speak to the horror of it. I'm not arguing the decision either way, but there is no denying that it was horrific. That last line says it all.
"please make friends from other countries." Well, put ! When our friend group is wider, the world is more peaceful.

The thing about war are the leaders that cause it.
They don't fight in it.
Everybody else dies in it.

Man is who he is, peace comes about never in this world. It's in our DNA, there will always be someone not willing to conform and the other seeking control or dominance. Only in God can we have it ,and in His heaven ,it exist. Here we are in 2020, and we are divided by money, power, principles and color. Our tech has only seen fit to do our bidding more efficiently . It's good to see someone working for something so illusive.
Impressive of japan to rebound and become highly advanced
It was a terrible thing for the United stayed to do, but it ended the war and saved a lot more lives in the long run

I want to use her quote, but I can't figure out one word. "Please make many friends from other countries. When you do so, you are ?????? the world will have peace." My speakers suck and I have listened to way too much loud heavy metal music and played drums without hearing protection and am too cheap to get hearing aids.

Japan . . . I've seen a document involving process. The intake person kept a copy for himself. For something as important as this I think not' so much a crime so that there are multiple proofs. The severity brought great discomfort to the perpetrator and family. They gave him diabetes. They blinded a son. They made another son into a policeman . . . not exactly a popular profession. We, of the United States of America, strive to make all process beyond doubt. So that you can trust.

May God bless this woman.
Such a travesty. Honestly, as someone who supports nuclear power, the nuclear weapons program and their use were scientific and government hubris pushing aside rationality and forethought. Ms. Tanaka's thoughtfulness and open mindedness (especially towards Americans, and in her English message at the end) is humbling. We did a really terrible thing, but I'm glad to hear that people, especially those so close to the attack as represented by, are interested in moving forward towards a brighter future, rather than holding this thing like a stone in their hearts, and taking steps towards progress to help ensure this doesn't happen in humanity's future.

So important for this history to be remembered and discussed without the filter of politics or nationalism. This film about Father George Zabelka, a priest who "blessed" those bombs, explains why he radically changed his perspective in the years following the bombing.
she sure looks alot younger

I once sat and listened to a Japanese woman tell us of her experience in Hiroshima on the day the A-bomb was dropped ... she was in her grade school court yard , I think she said she was 8 years old ... it was a beautiful blue sky sunny day , she saw up high in the sky a single shinning silver airplane flying over , there were no air raid sirens this morning so she thought it was one if their planes ... then everything went blinding light and she was thrown through the air , next she remembered was waking up under some debris , confused , frightened , and didn't now where she was because everything she could see was all different , destroyed , nothing was familiar and she started walking ... eventually she came across other people walking , they were burnt , cloths torn from them walking in crowds together ... she came across a lady that knew her who took her to see her father who was working in an intersection trying to help people , he ask the lady to please look after her because he had to help all these people , she didn't recognize her father at first because he was all dirty , burnt , and cloths torn apart ... another part of her story was when she came to the river , people who were all burnt jumping into the river to try and cool off , hundreds and hundreds of dead people's body's floating in the river floating by ... this beautiful hearted lady was on a speaking tour visiting Annapolis , MD area to tell her story at a small community center called Friends of (Annapolis ??) ... I took my daughter with me to hear her , my daughter was about 8 years old also and I thought it would be valuable for her to hear this lady tell of what happened to her when she was a young girl ...

The nuclear radiation made her not age
Ironic that the path to peace has been nuclear weapons. I feel for her, but I also feel for the soldiers of all the world wars, and all the cities that were bombed, all the families that have suffered. Nuclear weapons have drastically reduced all that. We'd be on World War 6 by now if Russia, China, and the US weren't armed to the teeth with them.

What a beautiful woman, and has such an amazing life story. That is just amazing. And amen, we definitely need to remember we all, on this planet, need to work together and make it a better place for all of us to live in synced harmony.

We should work to get rid of these terrible weapons, there can be no reason we should want to such weapons on other nations again.
