Overview

This is a true and incredible story of a Japanese adolescent, Shinji Mikamo, who miraculously survived the first atomic bombing of human kinds. He was on top of his house roof with nothing to shield him at only ¾ of a mile (1,200m) from the epicenter in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 toward the end of the World War II. But what made Shinji stand out from most of the survivors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, or even of many other man-made disasters in our history, he never hated Americans as aggressors. He somehow saw things from a much bigger perspective even in the very strict Japanese military government's mind control of civilians during the war. As one of his three legacy-carrying daughters, Dr. Akiko Mikamo wrote his story to send out the messages of human love and power of forgiveness to remind the world our worst enemies of yesterday could become the best friends of tomorrow.

This book follows the true accounts of a young Japanese man who was very close to ground zero when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima.  The story really paints a vivid image of what the scene and experience must have been like. A perspective very rare to encounter as an English speaking reader. The theme of survival and forgiveness is extremely powerful and leaves you with a sense of hope and encouragement for humanity. Ultimately you learn that blame is never the answer but understanding can yield prosperity. Highly recommended read!
