Below is one of the contest entries.
I feel sorry for those who had died People that lost their family members Those who been torn apart Buildings and houses that have been destroyed and ruined, it was a disaster People was scared, people were killed, sick The atomic bomb happened - 1945 People lost their lives Today people are trying to prevent this From happening so it won't happen again End
