Tsutomu Yamaguchi, the only known person to survive both the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atomic bombings, who crawled away from the first city and escaped over a river full of dead bodies, who believed he could, maybe, with the rest of his life, "change the life of some child who might otherwise grow up to do something evil and ultimately had a small chance of even preventing perhaps another Hiroshima or another Nagasaki in the future," died today at the age of 93.

May he rest in peace.
