PRINCETON TOWNSHIP -- In three days, it will have been 65 years since the United States dropped the second of two atomic bombs on Japan, an event that devastated the city of Nagasaki where Yasuko Ohta worked as a 15-year-old student.
Ohta, now 80, was just 1.3 kilometers -- less than a mile -- from ground zero at Nagasaki when the atomic bomb detonated.
The unimaginable destructive force of the bomb has shadowed Ohta throughout her life and she suspects the effects of the radiation led to all three of her children being born prematurely, for one of them to suffer from constant bloody noses when he was young and for another to be blind.
