Here is part of a survivors story,
Just before 8.15am Tomiko arrived at her school, Minami Takeya-cho.
Her classmates were already lined up outside for assembly. Then
everything changed, as if the world stopped. The atomic bomb
exploded above Hiroshima, only 1,800 metres from where Tomiko
was standing."I was in the midst of the bright, bright light. I felt as
if the sun dropped on me. Then the blast, strong blast attacked me.
I found myself under the rubble of the school. I was not sure how long
I was unconscious.
"I was in the darkness, I couldn't see anything. No-one was there.
No teacher, no student at all. No-one. I was worried because I was
the only one still alive. About 320 girls were on the playground and
10 teachers but there was nobody, they just disappeared and left me
in the darkness."My skin was peeling off and hanging down from my
neck and then my clothes, my back was burnt and the clothes were
just tattered and hanging down. The skin on both legs was peeling off.
You can imagine as if socks were inside out and open.
My leg was like that, all the skin on my legs was peeling off and hanging down.
Pieces of glass were speared into my head. For the first time I looked at
my wounds and I became sick, vomiting. At the same time, I felt so thirsty.
I wanted to get water, trying to find water, but there was none"I saw many
refugees crossing the bridge, like me all of their skin was peeling off.
It was so heavy for them, they were walking with holding their arms like this,
their skin was hanging down. There were dead bodies and dying people
floating on the river. I saw them, they were floating..
Nobody wins a war .
One side only loses more than the other ....
Lest we forget , and turn our world into this nightmare !
