On this very day in years past three tragedies occurred~

The Death of Jerry Garcia,A tragedy to mostly Music and his fans,But a death caused from the lifestyle he chose to live,all those years~
Sharon Tate was found dead with others on this date,Remember the Tate/La bianca Murders?~ This tragedy occurred at the hands of the Manson Family~
And finally the biggest tragedy suffered by mankind on the day August 9th 1945

The Atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Nagasaki,by the United States of America!

No matter that the reasoning at the time was deemed right and still is by so many,The fact remains that on this date more than 70,000 people died in an instant and many more later as a result! a tragedy inflicted on mankind by mankind!

Lets not forget that Japans also had agreed to surrender BEFORE Nagasaki was bombed....the second bomb was to imtimidate Russia because they didnt believe we had more than one. Those people who died...died to do nothing more than prove a point...THAT is the true sadness of that day.

And you know what, mankind hasn't learned a fucking thing even after all these thousands of years.

We still can't live together in peace and harmony, despite supposedly being a civilised society. Bush and Blair think they are Gods and can do as they please in other peoples lands and religions, that are supposed to preach about peace and loving the nighbour and heaven knows what else, are blowing each other to pieces.

Civilised my ass.

and to think I was sure the anniversary of Jerry's death wasn't going to get by me...(having diabetes didn't help him any, either)

duh on me, I didn't realize the other stuff...geez, kinda odd this year you show me that connection

Hello Corezon~ you know the only one I knew about and remembered was Garcia's death! The others I wasn't aware of havin' occured on this day except for an underground radio station's address on this!
it really shocked me to hear the three tragedies on the very same date~ That's Odd! And well I'm just odd to~

Hello Spunky,

Man suffers so much injustice and tragedies...these should never be forgotten...TY for the reminder and I shall say a little prayer for the surviving families.

If anyone has not read "Helter Skelter"...read it! It's old now, but you can still find it in book stores. ( about the Tate-La Bianca murders and the Charles Mansion gang.) I remember this too clearly!!
I am sitting here now with a "Grateful Dead" beenie bear on my computer station. Hard to believe Jerry Garcia has been dead so long.
The Atomic Bomb, no winners, so sad!

Hello Silverbreeze! I see we have much the same interest here! I was old enough(for sure) To remember the news every night about the
"Manson Family" And I still remember it's impact on me! I have a friend who was briefly friends with "Tex Watson" in Arizona,~I might have to post that one~ And I hear ya on the Jerry Garcia thing~
To bad but so true,No winners at Hiroshima or Nagasaki,Or in all parts of our world~ ~thanx~ ~Always welcome~
