Journal 7 Tiffney Shepherd

  1. The two characters that I will hold on to is Reverend Mr.Kiyoshi Tanimoto and Dr. Masakazu Fuji. Reverend Mr.Kiyoshi Tanimoto was a caring person and who was willing to others before himself. He would go around after the bomb fell and try to save as many as he can. We need more people like him around. I would do the same thing if I was in his shoes. Dr.Masakazu Fuji was a well known physician and after the war he dedicated more and more of himself to helping people that are medical need. We need more doctors like him that truly care for his patients and not munch for the money.
  2. I would say it’s a bit of both emotional and spiritual for reading this book. Just by reading this book, you feel what the characters feel and picture what the scene was like. I could not imagine being able to live through such horror, but I would not give up just like the characters in this book did.
  3. The first passage I choose was “At least a thousand of the wounded made their way to the hospital in town”.The reason I choose this passage is because it shows you about how many people needed help. This was only a small percentage of the people that was recorded at that time. The second passage I choose is “Despite the family’s poverty, the children seemed to be growing normally”. The reason I choose this one is, to show in rough times of food and water shortage, the children were doing well. The third passage I choose is “And where were you on August 6, 1945, at eight-fifteen in the morning”? The reason I choose this one is because it makes as a lasting reminder on what really happened that day.
  4. I think all the countries need to come together and eliminate or limit the use of nuclear weapons. Seeing the tragedy like Hiroshima makes you think twice of what this type of weapon could do. That is why we need to keep the story of Hiroshima alive, that way we can learn from our mistakes.
