Hiroshima and Nagasaki RememberedAugust 6, 2009
Warning: This video may contain disturbing images.
It’s me knocking at the doors,
The doors – one by one,
I’m not visible to your eyes,
The dead are invisible.
Since I died at Hiroshima,
almost ten years have passed.
I’m a seven year old girl
Dead children do not grow up.
First my hair caught fire
Then my eyes burnt out
I became a handful of ashes
My ashes blown in the air.
I’m knocking at your door
Aunts and uncles, give me a signature
So the children won’t be killed
And so they can eat candy.
