August 6

Certainly not a holiday but well worth remembering.

August 6 1945 was the first time a nuclear weapon was used.  Hiroshima in Japan saw 140,000 people killed. And, of course, a nuclear weapon was used again a few day later at Nagasaki.

Regardless of opinions then or now this was an event that fundamentally altered human society, the effects of which we continue to live with today.

Way too big of an event for me to put in perspective.
