Remembering August 6 1945 Hiroshima Day

How do we remember a day in the potential for human and ecolgical destruction on a scale never before imagined became actual? Weapons of mass destruction indeed - yet somehow we do not blink or shudder with the intense irony that the nation in possession of such weapons on a scale beyond our ability to grasp as a moral reality should use that excuse to start the war in Iraq?

Our moral numbness and blindness in the face of such evil remains a deep spiritual challenge. How can we reclaim our humanity, our identity as children of God called to love our enemy in such a situation?
