CWEB.com – President Obama arrived on Friday, becoming the first sitting U.S. president to visit since 1945 bombing. He called the visit “a testament to how even the most painful of divides can be bridged.”

Our Take: The Prime minister of Japan described the following in best words possible: “We stand here in the middle of this city and force ourselves to imagine the moment the bomb fell. We force ourselves to imagine the moment the bomb fell … feel the dread of children … listen to a silent cry. Mere words cannot give voice to such suffering.

“Someday the voices will no longer be with us to bare witness, but the memory must never fade. That memory fuels our imagination. It allows us to change.”
