Today was like a ghastly dream! Beds that were empty yesterday were now occupied by mangled and horribly burned patients.
In a few short hours, the simple routine of our lives was completely changed. We worked twelve and fourteen hours at a time and felt no exhaustion—only numbness. We couldn’t quite believe what had happened!
Heavy bombings daily, sometimes several times a day! Blackouts! Evacuation plans! Servants leaving for the provinces! Food prices skyrocketing!
Fort Stotsenberg and Clark Field had been bombed repeatedly, and our wounded and dying continued to fill the beds.
