|I made the sign of the cross to dirty water|
My schoolmate who was evacuating with me said to me,
"I want to drink water. I wish to drink water."
I scooped the muddy water in my hands from nearby river. I dug out inside the pumpkin I found there and poured the water in it. Then I made the sign of the cross wishing to purify the dirty water.
Since I was a Catholic Christian, I always carried a rosary, crucifix. I let classmates use the rosary, even they were not Christian. Together we prayed hard with the rosary in our hands.
Two Sisters came and joined us.
