We lived through the fire of the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, 75 years ago. We dedicated our lives to making sure that our generation would be the last hibakusha — the survivors of the atomic bombs.  We learned to be brave, hopeful and bold. We learned that it is up to people like you and me to stand up against nuclear weapons and the leaders who threaten the world with them.

The last great challenge we face is to ban and eliminate these weapons. Face it with us. We're nearly there.
