    For The Dead Of Hiroshima

    A flash of light burst wide and for a minute a young man is blind.
    The survivors, trapped under rubble are difficult to find.
    It is not thought of victory in his head, or when they will win,
    All that fills this medics mind is images of those with burnt skin.
    With his helmet he goes to the river getting water to give,
    Had no idea it was poison and they certainly will not live.
    Nine years later a young leukemia patient folds paper cranes.
    For her it is a desperate attempt to end her woes and pains.
    But the tragic girl’s body continues to deteriorate.
    For all she decorates nothing helps her escape her deadly fate.
    There a flame of peace is a voice against pain that will always burn,
    As long as the equipment making nuclear weapons will still turn.

    Only for the dead? Not for the people who were affected and didn't die?

    i actually did have a reference to the people who did not die but were affected. The "nine years later" in line seven is supposed to be Sadako Sasaki. Who died at the age of twelve. She was diagnosed at the age of eleven nine years after the atomic bomd went off. she suffered for about a year with lukemia before finally dying. She is the reference to those who survived the blast but died nonetheless. Her story is an interesting one. When the number of dead is qouted it is those who died in the following ninemonths and the initial attack. By that standard the tragedy is that Sadako Sasaki is the most famous "Survivor" of the blast. There are many other survivors whose stories are worth while but they are far to numerous to mention here.

    I know the story, that story started the whole paper crane collecting idea. Schoolkids from all over the country send garlands of them which you can see in the translucent boxes at the peace park.

    What I was talking about are all the people who didn't die from the effects of the bomb. That doesn't make them any less than those who did die (instantly or otherwise) does it?
