"B" is for Bomb

Original Child Bomb

Points for meditation to be scratched on the walls of a cave.

1. In the year 1945 an Original Child was born. The name Original Child was given to it by the Japanese people, who recognized that it was the first of its kind.

2. On April 12th, 1945, Mr. Harry Truman became the President of the United States, which was then fighting the second world war... About one hour after Mr. Truman became president, his aides told him about a new bomb that was being developed by atomic scientists. They called it the "atomic bomb"... Thomas Merton IDBD p.111
