And You Think You've Got Troubles
My story awhile back about man I interviewed in Japan--one of the few human who have been A-bombed twice. Yes, he was in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and then "escaped" to his family's home in...Nagasaki. There a handful of other "double hibakushas" as well. Somehow he survived and lived to a ripe old age. If you were him, would you consider yourself twice unlucky or doubly fortunate?
