Fighting for Survival

By: Grace Geisler

The people of Hiroshima were brave because they fought with the sickness for their survival.

The citizens of Hiroshima had to fight for their lives against fires and radiation, as displayed in this painting of a burning house after the bomb.

A cool video on a different kind of survivor.

A woman that survived the bomb getting treatment

If I were to provide assistance to the survivors, I would have tried to learn from the doctors and try to treat patients. There was a shortage of doctors, and they would need all the capable people to help treat the injured. The doctors could teach me to put medicine on the wounds, wrap them, and wait with the patients so they could not be alone. I would also try to calm the people down do they would not have to freak out. It is the most logical choice to try to save people who were less fortunate than I that were injured, possibly very badly.

The origami crane was a symbol of peace and health for the Japanese.


Poem

A normal day for people,

a normal day for fun,

But when the bomb was dropped,

It all turned hotter than the sun

      

Fighting their own bodies,

To get far from the disease,

And before they knew that they would die,

They were already deceased

      

But they did not give up hope just yet,

They had much more to tell,

And though they were not all alone,

Their hope had nearly fell

       

Even in great sorrow,

And even in great pain,

The people fought for life and hope,

To make the horror worth the gain

A fun song with a deeper meaning.

FIGHT SONG- Rachel Platten

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
but I can make an explosion

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Losing friends and I'm chasing sleep
Everybody's worried about me
In too deep
Say I'm in too deep
And it's been two years
I miss my home
But there's a fire burning in my bones
And I still believe
Yeah I still believe

And all those things I didn't say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

A lot of fight left in me

Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
but I can make an explosion

This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I'm alright song
My power's turned on
Starting right now I'll be strong
I'll play my fight song
And I don't really care if nobody else believes
Cause I've still got a lot of fight left in me

Now I've still got a lot of fight left in me
