Remembering Hiroshima: 6 August 1945

August 6, 2007

To remember the past is to commit oneself to the future. To remember Hiroshima is to abhor nuclear war. To remember Hiroshima is to commit oneself to peace. To remember what the people of this city suffered is to renew our faith in man, in his capacity to do what is good, in his freedom to choose what is right, in his determination to turn disaster into a new beginning.”
— John Paul II, Address at Peace Memorial Park, Hiroshima, Japan (Feb. 25, 1981)
