Obama Makes History as First Sitting US President to Visit Hiroshima

President Obama made history today, as he visited the site of the atomic bomb being set off in Hiroshima over seven decades ago. He became the first sitting president to visit the site since the event itself took place.

He laid a wreath to honor the victims, and then gave a speech, which happened to soon as I post this to have gotten all of the details, and although I was watching it, it was not exactly with pen and paper in hand.

Some things that he said, however, did stand out.

He said that nations holding "nuclear stockpiles must escape logic of fear."

Also, he also expressed that it is infinitely preferable for people of the world when scientists focus on all of the wonderful things that it can bring to human life, and not on ending it ever more efficiently.
