The town of Hiroshima was blurred with flames and smoke, and I got over the pass to learn the situation. There I saw injured, dead, and people with no energy to escape getting over the pass huddling against each other, just craving water. These people asked me for help, but I had to apologize for not being able to do anything like real treatment. I just gave them some water and hurried away to the town of fire to look for my mother and brothers.
