A Bomb Cities 60 years later

Ms. Tamiko Ishizaki ( 92 . 33 at the time of the explosion ) The Hill of Grace Nagasaki A Bomb Home...I was 33 years old, on august 7 a friend of mine had told me that a friend of her father had seen a poster saying that American b29 will drop another bomb if japan does not surrender. ..On august 9 I went to work at the mitsubishi factory that morning after our meeting where we had our morning meeting where we cheered to work harder for the Japanese war effort. I was sent on an errand away from my 9 workers aged 14 to 17 years old , she was on her way to the train station , she looked up and saw this incredible light and the sound and I was 1.3 kms away from the bomb , I couldn't open my eyes because of the intense heat, when I recovered my senses everything around was black and then I understood what it was. ..As I looked for a shelter, I came across walking wounded people , with their eyes balls dangeling from their sockets, black and bloody. ..When I arrived to the shelter , there were lots of children crying with pain for their parents..Father it hurts! ..Everywhere was on fire ..I saw people I thought the fabric of kimone were hunging from her body but it was the skin,..Then I saw this 4 or 5 years kid calling mummy , she grabs me and pulls me to her mother, she was trap onto a burning wrackage, I couldn't help her , I tried to free her and couldn't , she ask me to take her child to the shelter and hopefully his father will find him when he returns from the war, as I look back I saw her dying engulf in flames. ..I saw some people on my way to the sheleter and then I asked them about my neighborhood Urakami and they said it was completely gone, everything was gone. ..As I walked to my neighborhood , I saw everything was burned and everyone was burned. Then I saw a young child crying for his mother. Mumy mumy but his mother was dead. ..At 500 m from the hypocenter I saw a blacked figured , I couldn't tell it was a man or a woman , I couldn't recognize her ,
