Fact of the Day: Hiroshima Miracles

The atomic explosion over Hiroshima, Japan during World War II totaled the city but some survived and some at surprisingly close distance to ground zero. One person was only 190 yards (170m) away but was protected by a basement while looking for documents.

Terrible act of devastation and cruelty.
The Imperial Japanese war machine has already been brought to it's knees and was impotent.
