Me and my mum ran away as fast as we could from the bomb. Suddenly black rain started pouring down on us, acid rain. Me and my mum just kept running.
10 years later, I was at school, when suddenly bumps started appearing all over my body! I was taken to hospital. That's when the doctor came with some bad news, he said that I was ill from the atomic bomb, and I didn't have long left to live. One day I went to one of the other patients in the hospital, to chat. The girl told me a Japanese legend, that said ' if you make 1000 paper cranes you can have a wish', so sadako made over 1000 cranes, but sadly she still died.
the crane is seen as a symbol of peace in Japan.
