62 Years of Pain....

**i was watching the news last night and it was the 62nd annniversary of the nagasaki atomic bombing. and a few days before was the anniversary for the hiroshima bombing. it was pretty sad watching all the elderly people that survived the bombing crying on tv. it must have been a long 62 years of pain and suffering for them. i've been to hiroshima and nakasaki and it's business as usual but the deep scars were still there. my grandfather's parents were from hiroshima and when ever i use to talk to him about hiroshima, his eyes would tear up. it must have been hard for him being an american citizen living through that war. in college, i did a paper about the hardships of japanese/americans living in hawaii during WWII. i interviewed my grandfather many times and i remember how our conversations would just stop as he would just sit there and stare out the window. at that time, i was young so i didn't think too much about it but after traveling to hiroshima and nagasaki, the reality set in. it must have been hard for every japanese either living in america or japan to have gone through that war. anyway, i was thinking about it all last night and was wondering how i would handle something like that. the answer was "i would not and could not"..... it would kill me inside. and now i know how the people who actually went through it felt or feel..... PEACE.....
