Summary As the United States debates launching another war in the Middle East, this passionate diary paired with a pondered discussion provides a reality check on how governments goad citizens into going to war and gives a forthright look at the hideous results for civilian casualties. Who bears the responsibility for decisions made in a?democracy? when our leaders or the media exaggerate the threat and downplay the harm our actions will cause?. In this agonizing diary, a survivor of the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima relates the horror of searching through smoldering rubble for signs of her family.
