Ileen as a vibrant little girl

Contributor: finnsh Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

This story is told by Leah Fausett Jespersen, Ileen's sister. Leah was two years older than Ileen, (both born in February) and they were inseparable. They sang together, climbed together, played together and slept together in the old iron crib. When Ileen was around 3 years old she had a siezure, or convulsion as it was called in those days and from then on she was an invalid. Leah said that the day it happened they were playing on the bed and all of a sudden Ileen started to have a siezure. Her mother (Elnor) called for their father (Barney) to come quickly. Barney held the two little girls in his arms to try to comfort them. He told them that everything would be OK, as his tears flowed with theirs. From then on she could not eat (chew), talk, walk or communicate with anyone except her mother. Elnor always took such good care of Ileen. She mashed and blended her food so she could drink it, she changed her diapers, kept her clean and groomed, and Ileen would throw her head back and smile so big and brightly at her mother and anyone who was there. Barney had a nick name for Ileen, it was an indian name, "Chi". The kids called her "Leenie". Leah would still get up into the crib and play with Ileen and occassionly steal her bottle when she felt picked on. Ileens parents took her to many doctors throughout her life, they even took her to a doctor in Idaho very often. But no one knew how to get her well again. Sometimes Leah would go with them. Many tried to convice her parents to put her into an institution but they would not hear of it. They would take such good care of her all of her life. Thirteen months later Dee was born and so they became three in the big iron crib to play together. Ileen died when she was 38 years old but not without being loved so dearly by so many of her family members.

Thirty-five thousand people are killed outright, including 23,200-28,200 Japanese war workers, 2,000 Korean forced workers, and 150 Japanese soldiers. Nagasaki is the capital and the largest city of Nagasaki Prefecture on the island of Kyushu in Japan. The city's name, 長崎, means "long cape" in Japanese.

The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
