Miyake Invites Obama to Hiroshima
Here is a powerful call by Issey Miyake for President Barack Obama to visit Hiroshima, and honor and commemorate one of the pivotal moments in American and world history. No matter what you think about America's decision to drop the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it isa crucial turning point in our history that changed so many people's lives, I think it is a very good idea for President Obama to properly take notice of it as Miyake suggests.
Miyake was only a child when the bomb was dropped on Hiroshima but you can see it still had a powerful effect on him, and his call on Obama to honor it and reaffirm that this should never have to happen again is a powerful message.
