... cream. I ate it and looked at the dome where the bomb had hit. It was in so much ruin but part of the dome was stil intact.
Then, we went to the Children`s Memorial and we hung up the paper cranes. There was this one girl who was exposed to the bomb at age 2 and didnt have any issues until a while later. She got lukemia and folded 1,000 paper cranes to get her wish of world peace. It`s still in progress now....

On August 6, 1945, when the bomb exploded, the roof was crushed, the interior destroyed, and everything consumable burned except in the basement. Eventually, 36 people in the building died of the bombing; 47-year-old Eizo Nomura survived in the basement, which had a concrete roof through which radiation had a more difficult time penetrating. He survived into his 80s. Cheers ...
