An Atomic Spark from a 1937 Yearbook

I read an amazing post about Hiroshima and what lengths a son will go through to see an unexpected smile on his father face. These are the memories we need to preserve. Thanks to MUSTANG.KOJI for allowing me along on the journey of finding his fathers 1937 year book.

An Atomic Spark from a 1937 Yearbook.



  1. What a lovely story.

    • I feel blessed to have read it, and thankful to be able to share it!

  2. Wow, notsofancynancy. Thank you so much!

    • I think you and I walk the same paths with trying to honor our fathers. I am thankful that you still have him here, and I am blessed to share your journey. I look forward to the next post you do to honor him. And please thank him for me for serving, he is a very strong soul, the quiet ones always are, I am just saying.

      • While I am just learning this “blog” thing – as well as writing – I wish to thank you. After your posting about my father here, the number of visits to my blog rose considerably. I need to learn my way around this site – especially this “reblog” thing!

        I thank you once again and we do share the same goal as you say. It is nice to know there are other people out there that share the same feelings.

      • I am just learning this blog thing too. I do know that one other person shared your blog from the one I blogged. I am not sure if it shows you this also. If I can be of any help let me know.

        God Bless and keep up the great work!

  3. Reblogged this on Strike of Lightning! and commented:
    Memories last forever, we dont know about tomorrow!

  4. I’m so glad you shared the story from the 1937 year book! Amazing photos! Debra

    • It had me riveted till the end. I am glad I figured out how to share it! lol

  5. So cool! How generous and loving of all.

    • Thank you for reading it. As a matter of fact, like your father, my father was to have gone with me to Hawaii (my first blog) but he was admitted to emergency six days before the flight…

      • Oh no! Its so disappointing for them (and you!) because they look SO forward to it.
