Sixty-nine years ago this week, the U.S. dropped nuclear bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The resulting massive, lasting destruction is a reminder of the human cost of nuclear weapons.

I encourage U.S. Sens. Joe Donnelly and Dan Coats as well as U.S. Rep. Luke Messer to learn from this anniversary and consider how their actions could keep it from happening again.

The U.S. still has an arsenal of about 1,550 nuclear weapons, more than enough to destroy the world many times over. President Obama and the Joint Chiefs of Staff agree that the U.S. can maintain its security even while making further cuts to the nuclear arsenal.

I believe that the world will not be safe from nuclear weapons until there are no nuclear weapons left.
