𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘰𝘭𝘥 𝘮𝘢𝘯 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘳 –

Elderly Japanese gentleman solemnly looking at the Yokosuka MXY-7 "Ohka" Model 11. Nicknamed "the cherry blossom", this purpose-built, rocket-powered aircraft was in reality a bomb piloted by a human being. Its rocket propulsion system lasted for only a few moments, giving the pilot just enough time to properly aim and direct the payload towards an enemy ship.

The pilots were Japanese boys and young men, many of them as young as 17.

It was called Tokubetsu Kōgekitai – "Special Attack Unit" – but was more commonly known as "kamikaze". An estimated 3 862 Japanese boys sacrificed their lives as kamikaze pilots, taking over 7 000 allied naval personell with them.
This – becoming "the divine wind" – was seen by many as the greatest honor in serving your nation.

Perhaps this gentleman still hears whispers in the breeze.
