|Joe O'Donnell, "Japan 1945 — A U.S. Marine's Photographs from Ground Zero"|
"As I approached the outskirts of Ground Zero, I came upon these three children. The oldest child was pushing the other ones on this makeshift cart. They stopped and looked at me, uncertain as to what I might do. I gave the oldest one an apple, he bit into it,then passed it to the next child. At once, a swarm of flies descended on the apple, but the children shared the apple in solemn silence, oblivious to the flies flying in and out of their mouths."
