Starting to give my A-bomb testimony, I learned that there are hibakusha all over the world.

When my mother said to me,“Keiko-chan, death isn’t terrible. It isn’t frightening,” I thought, “Oh, that airplane is going to drop a bomb. And then, I’ll die.” Looking back now, it is amazing that a nine-year-old girl prepared for her death, then.

Listen sincerely to survivors and think about what you can do for yourself.
To think about your future is the duty of young people living in the victim country of the atomic bombs.

I think it is important for us to know and remember what A-bomb survivors experienced, but at the same time, it is important to know that there were a lot of people who couldn’t even talk about their experiences.

I have been grateful to those foreign students from the bottom of my heart. They always helped and supported us. We were comforted and encouraged by them.

History goes on, and the past and the present are never separated. We need to realize it and pass what happened down to the next generation.

I’ll convey survivors’ A-bomb experiences not in their copied words but in my own words by understanding their spirits, so that my words will stay in the minds of the next generation.

Don’t quit learning about war, please, though you feel scared.
Please tell people around you about war that occurred in the past.

I haven’t experienced war, so I can talk about the atomic bombing with the same viewpoint as young people, which I think is significant.

You should act and see by yourself. I think, “Action changes the future.”
