If You're Having A Bad Day ...Be Glad Your Not This Guy

Tsutomu Yamaguchi has died at the age of 93.  He was in Hiroshima when the atomic bomb was dropped.  After suffering radiation burns, he heard that there was a train leaving to the town where his family lived, so he crossed a river that had no bridge by crawling across hundreds of bloated, floating dead bodies to the other side where the train station was, and headed back home . . . to Nagasaki, where the second atomic bomb was dropped days later.  He is the only officialy recognized survivor of both bombings.
