August 6th: This Day in (Camp Casey) History by Cindy Sheehan

--> August 6th is certainly a day that has gone down in infamy. From Hiroshima, August 6, 2011 Undoubtedly, the most notorious event that occurred on 8/6 was the 1945 US a-bombing of Hiroshima followed closely by the bombing of Nagasaki. The tragedy of those war crimes still has have many repercussions to this day.  I was honored to be invited to visit Japan on the anniversaries and I met survivors and the family members of those that were obliterated.

However, those arguments have been well-established elsewhere - for example, by organizations like the Physicians for a National Health Program, or the variety of organizations - from UNICEF to the United Nations - on the non-scarcity of food and water.   It is evident, however, that such arguments do not rupture cynical attitudes or reverse feelings of powerlessness. Observation of the political culture of the United States, its effects on the psychological existences of the population, and the attitudes of the political elite might lead us somewhere in our inquiry. The question is "what is preventing changes
