The second experiencewill be the one that Toshiko Sasaki had. She worked for a local tin company andworked hard to provide for her younger siblings and parents. She was at work whenthe atomic bomb was dropped. During the bombing, a bookcase fell on her andcrushed her leg. The bomb destroyed many hospitals and killed many doctorswhich made it hard to receive proper medical attention. This is exactly whathappened to Toshiko.
She wasn’t able to receive the proper medical care sheneeded for her led and it became infected and healed incorrectly. This resultedher in becoming crippled for the rest of her life. Despite being crippled, shestill spent the rest of her life taking care of her younger siblings andeventually became a nun.
There seems some sort of underlying message in thissituation. Despite surviving an atomic bomb and not being killed instantly fromthe evils of war; she was actually crippled by books that are supposed torepresent learning and education.
