Mayor Of Hiroshima Asks World Leaders To Follow Obama's Example
Saturday marked the 71st anniversary of the atomic bombing of the Japanese city. The mayor referenced Obama's historic trip in May.
Saturday was the 71st anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, and the city's mayor took the opportunity to encourage other world leaders to be more like Obama.
The mayor was referring to Obama's May visit to the city, which was hit by an atomic bomb from the U.S. during World War II.
"The scientific revolution that lead to the splitting of the atom requires a moral revolution as well. Ordinary people understand this, I think," Obama said in May.
The Hiroshima mayor wants more world leaders to visit the city and to work toward getting rid of nuclear weapons.
