Look, getting nuked twice in a few days must really suck and certainly makes for a dramatic experience, but please don't forget the victims and
survivors of other terrible events that unfortunately took place, such as firestorm in Dresden, Tokyo and other places, wholesale killings in Eastern
Europe by the Nazis etc. Radiation is a dangerous thing, but the sheer horror of other events needs to be recognized. I knew a person who was a small
girl when St. Petersburg was besieged by the Nazis, and they had these trenches in the yard to shelter them during German air raids. She was tired one
day and didn't go there when a raid began, but all her neighbors did. A bomb hit that trench, directly. When that girl walked out, guts were hanging
on phone wires. And these were people she knew and spoke with 5 min. ago.
Just putting things in perspective.
