100 Days - 54 : remembrance and commemoration

Browsing news today I learned that 6th August is the date that the Voting Rights Act was signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson

It is also the day that we remember the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima. These are important things to think about in the current political climate, both the long term effect of these events, and the ongoing importance of the issues that they raise.

Today's Book To Make You Think (I know I forgot all about doing this) I highly recommend John Hersey's book 'Hiromshima' that was written in the immediate aftermath of the events.

Stay safe. See you tomorrow.
