Original message
The firebombing of Dresden was the beginning of the end.
Or maybe it was the Spanish-American war.
Or the annexation of Hawaii
Or the massacre at Wounded Knee
Or the innumerable broken treaties with the Native Americans
Or the Trail of Tears
Or the toleration of slavery in the Constitution

etc, etc, ad nauseaum.

We have been an empire since the Louisiana Purchase, and have immorally treated the non-white populations of our nation for at least as long. Hiroshima and Nagasaki were neither a beginning or an end, just another piece in a long running morality play.
