  • Title: Hiroshima Tengu
  • Artist: Stella Meowris
  • Description: For Hiroshima Day
    6 August 1945, US bombers drop the atom bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

    Tengu: Japanese Crow Deity, punishes arrogant warriors.

    Debate continues re: ethics & strategy. This entry is not engaging in debate but honors the dead, among them my uncle.

    About 70K died immediately in Hiroshima + 40K in Nagasaki. 200K died of radiation effects up to 1950. Leukemia & cancer deaths continued for decades, including my uncle who served in a US Navy hospital ship in the harbor. RIP

  • Thank you, Dragonklaw99. I would rather have seen this win than my entry that placed 8th last week... although I'm not about to throw any victory back! XD

  • How sad to hear about your uncle. So many people lost family in the bombings. Your beautiful avi honors their memory.
