Hiroshima marks 73rd anniversary of atomic bombing

70th anniversary of Hiroshima atomic bombing: Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum shows a view of the mushroom cloud

In Ashland Monday morning, a brief ceremony marked with the sound of a gong signaled the beginning of a four-day ceremony and the moment when the first of two atomic bombs exploded onto the world stage.

Survivors, their relatives and other participants marked the 8:15 a.m. blast with a minute of silence.

The anniversary comes as optimism has grown that North Korea may voluntarily denuclearize after Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un and his United States counterpart, President Donald Trump, made statements implying as much after they met in Singapore in June.
