Tsutomu Yamaguchi, l'homme quiIn the Washington Post today we read an article entitled Double Atomic bomb survivor dies in Japan .  Here is an excerpt:

"Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only person officially recognized as a survivor of both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings at the end of World War II, has died at age 93.

Yamaguchi was in Hiroshima on a business trip for his shipbuilding company on Aug. 6, 1945, when a U.S. B-29 dropped an atomic bomb on the city. He suffered serious burns to his upper body and spent the night in the city.

He then returned to his hometown of Nagasaki, about 300 kilometers (190 miles) southwest, which suffered a second U.S. atomic bomb attack three days later.

On Aug. 15, 1945, Japan surrendered, ending the war." This man saw more horror than any other human being alive in the past two hundred years.  May he rest in peace.
