Part One: The character that has been most interesting to me so far is Dr. Sasaki. So far after the bombing, he has been taking care of most of the people who were injured. On the top of page 26, John Hersey does a really nice job describing his character. "Dr. Sasaki lost all sense of profession and stopped working as a skillful surgeon and a sympathetic man; he became an automaton, mechanically wiping, dubing, winding, wiping, daubing, winding." Because he was only few of the Dr's that make it through the bomb alive, he really didn't have a choice if he wanted to help other people or not, he simply just did. When something major happens like that, I feel people don't really think about the situation, they simply just help take care of the people who truly need it.
