Sadako Sasaki’s effect on the world

Over the last few days, I have been so impressed with the work you have created that has been inspired by the story of Sadako Sasaki and her ferocious battle with leukaemia. You have written moving diary entries and tear-jerking letters to Sadako’s friends.  Most impressively, you have written a letter to the President of the United Nations asking for a picture of Sadako to be placed in the assembly hall of this great institution, to remind World leaders of their responsibility, not to mention the true cost of war.

Tomorrow I am going to show you some carefully chosen clips of the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima on 6th August, 1945.  You will need to write to our Prime minister to give you point of view: should money be spent on updating the UK’s nuclear arsenal or should this precious money be invested on other things? Blog your thoughts.  You will use these as you write over the next day or two.

  1. I think that people will see that what is happening in the world is wrong. Because of Sadako’s story. people will now see that and may realise that teaching people a lesson gives consequences.

  2. Should money be spent on military weapons and defence?

    Against:
    All money should not be spent on weapons and defence.
    If you buy weapons, you are expecting warfare. This means even more people being injured or even fatal to death.
    When people are injured, hospitals and surgeries need money from the government but all the money would have been spent on weapons. Therefore, people would just die…
    Jeffery Brown believes that the money should be spent on educating children to make world peace – he thinks that war can be stopped this way.
    Unless there are wars, we don’t need advanced technology or weapons. These weapons could lead to crimes in United Kingdom.
    We already have weapons that can defend our country.
    If peace was made, no weapons will be needed – it would just be a waste of money.
    Thousands of charities need the council and the country’s help. These are causes that need helping right now. But, the war materials are needed in the future, that might not even happen. Charities include Cancer which desperately need people’s help to stop the disease sooner.
