Think Your Circus Has Had A Tough Lineup?

The next time you think your circus is not going so well, remember Tsutomu Yamaguchi. He was traveling on business to Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945. While there he experienced the dropping of the first atomic bomb. He suffered severe burns and left the next day to go home... to Nagasaki.

Yes, that is correct. On August 9 he once again experienced the horror of an atomic blast. According to Japanese officials, he is the only person certified to have survived the two bombings. You can read more about Mr. Yamaguchi here.

So, as you are experiencing some bumps in your lineup this week, don't forget others have survived much worse-and lived to tell about it.
