Of Donuts and Atom Bombs


Towards the end of World War II, U.S. forces dropped two atom bombs. One fell on Hiroshima, Japan. This summer is the 71st anniversary of that day, and last month President Barack Obama became the first President of the U.S. to visit the city. The damage was extensive, and the death toll was high, but the façade of the city does not give evidence to the mark left on the psyche of its people.

A Pioneers team of Caucasians and Asians work there in the city. Though Hiroshima is known as the “city of peace,” and the people consider themselves ambassadors of world peace, this Pioneers team is trying to introduce people to an everlasting source of peace, one donut at a time.
