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.
