I don’t want to let the past defeat me

“For years by now, I go cycling every week over dozens of kilometers. My mom was pregnant with me when the bomb exploded, she was not far from the explosion, and was burned. So, we both had been exposed to radiation, and the effects of radiation made me sensitive to cancer. My health is not the best in the world, but I must keep my rhythm, push my body, and push my mind. I don’t want to let the past defeat me anymore, as it has defeated thousands of my people.”
