Memories of nuclear bomb survivors - Part 2 Chapter 7

Closing Words


It took me a long time to be convinced of the necessity of recording my experiences following the atom bomb explosion. Then l started writing them down, feeling obliged as one of the survivors to the thousands of people who were no longer able to live or die humanely.

Unfortunately, l am unable to record the events as exactly as l would like to. I can only add that the reality was much, much worse than my honoured readers can imagine.
Finally, l pray that a nuclear bomb will nowhere in the world be ever dropped again.
June 1997
