When I woke up I was nervous, people were calm, are they crazy? At 8:25 we sat down on the portside facing the starboard. I was pretty scared, I had the chills, it was already 8:28. “Two minutes to the burst” I was shaking. 8:29 60 seconds to go. We counted down from 60, then we were at “5 4 3 2 1 … BOMB GONE!”
I felt the shock in my body and my heart was in my throat. I could see the bones in my hands, I felt a hot breeze penetrate my clothing. It was getting to the point where it was burning my skin little by little. Then we started counting up to 15 “1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15” again I was nervous but we all stood, took off our goggles, opened our eyes and looked behind. The hot breeze rushed towards my face with a loud “whoosh” hurting my eyes a little. Getting over the burning sensation in my eyes I opened them and was greeted by a mushroom cloud. I chuckled a little, the mushroom cloud looked a little funny, but fear rushed over me.
