    1945: During World War II, the U.S. B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb code-named “Little Boy” on Hiroshima, Japan, resulting in an estimated 140,000 deaths.

    I never understood why Japan didn't surrender after the bombing of Hiroshima. They waited until after the 2nd bomb was dropped on Nagasaki to surrender.

    I doubt there was much coherent information shared after the first bomb, just a room full of people who knew that they would be hung if they surrendered.

    Bombing raids on Japan continued from August 9th to the 15th after the 2nd atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki.

    They wanted to make sure America was committed.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
