Lead: It was eight seconds past 8:16 AM, the teachers’ room of the Hongkowa Elementary School, exploded into a blinding bluish light.

Intro.: "A Moment in Time" with Dan Roberts.

Content: At first Katsuko Horibe heard nothing. Glass peppered her scalp and forehead but she felt nothing. She flung herself under a desk and plugged her ears against the horrible noise. Suddenly it was over. Silent and as dark as night. Just 600 feet southeast of Miss Horibe's hiding place, the world's second atomic bomb had just exploded. The City was Hiroshima, Japan, 1945.
