Many people in Hiroshima after the bombing have a hard time 'living their lives like the dream they have is real" because of a illness or because they lost everything in the bombing and are now poor. Also during and after the bombing they had to keep each other safe and help everyone they can.
This is the Japanese symbol for hope.
These are the hope lanterns that are put out on the anniversary of the bombing.
On that horrible day
Thousands of people died, some still a mystery
But now, many years later everything is okay
And what happened there is history
These people had hope
In hard times that were very long
In these harsh conditions they had to cope
They had to stay strong
The people had lost everything
But they still had hope, they kept moving on
Even when times became frustrating
They awaited a new dawn
Eventually as time passed
The survivors started a new beginning
They would never forget what happened after the blast
But their lives went on and they found reasons to be grinning
Chelsie Hill had hope and is able to drive a car again after being paralyzed in an accident. She has hope that if she keeps working hard at physical therapy she will be able to walk again.
If I had been able to provide assistance to the survivors I would have tried to help people medically. I would bring materials that doctors needed to help. I would also try and care for people who are injured by getting items for them such as water or rice. Another action I would do to help would be to offer calming advice to people who are very scared, especially children.
This picture shows people helping each other, just like I would do if I was able to help during the Hiroshima bombing.
