Finding Friends — Hiroshima

If I had been able to assist the survivors of Hiroshima I think I would use tools like these (see below) to help families find each other. Many people spent time looking for survivors that they knew. They would go back and find their homes destroyed, unsure whether their families were living. I would create a small hut in the center of Hiroshima where people could check in and write down where they would be staying so if anyone came looking, they could find them.

So Umm...My Poem

Warning: May Rhyme Every Time

One atomic bomb is all it takes,

To destroy one persons' life sake.

It takes 20,000 tons of TNT

To turn a reputation, family, and city into debris.

Scattered all throughout the city,

Those people's lives must be a pity.

Finding friends and family, too,

Is more than a victim can possibly do.

Healing in a hospital bed,

With as little food as a loaf of bread,

Among debilitated people of radiation,

To which there is no medication.

To find friends strewn all over the place,

Is like finding a star somewhere in space.

Who knows if they are alive or dead,

Who knows if anything lies ahead?

This image shows how people can find one another through connections with others. This relates to natural disasters. If you find a parent, likely you'll find a child.
