Remembering the attack on Hiroshima

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – A delegation from Japan, including Hiroshima's mayor, joined San Diego representatives Tuesday at a memorial ceremony at Shelter Island.

"We should learn what happened and we should learn what made it happen and then we shouldn't repeat it," one attendee said.

During the ceremony, local representatives joined Japanese officials to read messages of peace.

Wednesday marks the 69th anniversary of the bombing that claimed the lives of more than 160,000.
