There has been a lot of debate among historians on whether or not the US bombing of Hiroshima was, in the long run, a necessity to end World War II, but there is no debate about how devastating the event and its aftereffects were.

Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake grew up in Hiroshima and was there during the bombings. He later lost his mother to radiation exposure, and understandably does not like dwelling on the event.

But after President Obama's recent hopes to rid our modern world of nuclear weapons, Miyake wrote a moving piece for The New York Times in which he hopes that this is the beginning of the end of nuclear warfare.
