The Forgotten BombAlso if you don’t have HBO or happened to miss John Oliver’s show, Last Week Tonight, this past Sunday night he did a brilliant piece on nukes which showed the current apathy regarding them today. That apathy is part of the reason that Bud Ryan and Stuart Overbey named their film, The Forgotten Bomb, and why it is so important to constantly voice our opinions on nuclear weapons to our elected officials. Please watch Mr. Oliver’s piece at this link:

Lastly if you’ve never read John Hersey’s Hiroshima, which tells the story of what happened on that horrible day August 6, 1945 through the eyes of 6 individuals who were there, you can do so by going to:

We all live with the terror of nuclear weapons hanging over our heads like a Sword of Damocles, and it is important for everyone to read about what could happen and what has happened to the people of Hiroshima & Nagasaki.
