AIKEN, S.C.--- He's truly a remarkable man. A man who survived the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.

Takashi Teramoto spoke at the Aiken Unitarian Universalist Church Monday night.

He had a very powerful message he wanted to share about atomic weapons.

"The most important message is that atomic bomb was real," he said through a translator. "Nuclear weapons are real and they are extremely powerful and deadly and we absolutely must make sure they are never used again, and so we need to abolish them all."

Teramoto says we need to find ways to stop wars. He says meeting people is his way to try to make a connection with people to help prevent war.
