Independent Learning Log #1
Date: 28 May 2016
What I did:
I went to the National Geographic website to find an article and happened to see a article that caught my attention. I am generally interested in World War 2 and its effect on the world and this article is talking about the effects of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima.
What I learnt:
I learnt that the atomic bomb has very dertremental effects in Hiroshima and has killed thousand of people.
The people who were affected by the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima did not want an apology from the President of United States, Mr Barack Obama. The bomb was released to hasten the the end of World War 2, hence the leaders had to make a hard desicion to drop a atomic bomb on Hiroshima. The people who survived have suffered many long-term effects, even until this day. Despite Japan and USA coming to peace, some people think that President Obama has not done enough to make up for the damage caused. Yet, some people think that the fact that President Obama made a trip down to Hiroshima has given an example to the world of how we should behave, and they should improve relationships to eliminate nuclear weapons entirely.
