Dropping the Atom Bomb

            Near the end of World War II, the United States dropped two bombs on Japan; one on the city of Hiroshima and the other on Nagasaki. The bombs devastated both cities and caused short term and long term problems. The two bombs immediately killed about 120,000 people but also gave many radiation poisoning. In the following weeks, more Japanese died from radiation poisoning. The citizens who survived had an increased risk of cancer and some had deformed babies. Dropping bombs and wiping out entire cities full of people is immoral and completely unnecessary. The U.S. made the wrong decision because of health problems, innocent citizens dying, and it was immorally wrong.
             The survivors of the bombing were faced with difficult situations that crippled them for generations. Anyone in the radius of the bomb most likely had some sort of radiation poisoning. Radiation poisoning lead to an increased risk in cancer and malformations in babies. We all know how terrible cancer is and how many lives the disease has taken. The survivors now had an increased risk in getting cancer which is so unfortunate and sad. If any of the survivors had kids they might be born with malformations. These malformations popped up randomly and stayed in families for generations. Parents must've been heart broken when they realize their child will not be able to live a normal life. There were also very many physical effects such as amnesia, emotional intolerance, dizziness, headaches, insomnia, disturbances of metabolism and nutrition, blindness, and liver dysfunction. The bomb robbed many of their lives but also left many with scars. .
             About 120,000 citizens died immediately as a result of the two bombs; mostly innocent citizens. Innocent women and children were killed because of the bomb even though they weren't the ones fighting the war. If you were a little kid and you saw everyone around you was about to die, it probably wasn't the best idea to drop an atomic bomb.
