August 15 is called End of War Day, the day on which the country of Japan promised not to go to war.
What is war?
Until August 15, 1945, Japan had fought in fights with other countries.
This is called “war.
On August 6, 1945, a big bomb called an atomic bomb was dropped on a place called Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan, and on August 9, the same bomb was dropped on a place called Nagasaki.
As a result, many people died, were injured, were separated from their families and friends, had their houses burned down, and lost their food, which was very painful and sad.
That is why on August 15, we made a promise to end the war by saying, “From now on, there will never be another war.
How do we spend it?
