60 years of Hiroshima - SAY NO TO WAR! BAN THE BOMB!
i am going to the rally today because i am afraid for my kids. i live in a life which has so far been free from war. I have seen the devastating effects of war thru films and the Discovery channel. i pray that no one has to go thru it. War to me begins when people stop talking. Yes it is a simplistic view but that is why freedom of speech is so important. if we don't let people say their peace in a level headed discussion, that is when the winchesters, the AK-47s, the Uzis, the Kalishnikovs come out. Do we really still need NUKES in our day and age. is any nation really that bad that it has to be obliterated for the sake of teaching their leaders a lesson. i have been told many times that we live in a civilised world, but with all the poverty, racial intolerance, rape, ragut, wives throwing acid on their husband's face (eventhough he was probably asking for it) and murder happening all around us, i reaally challenge that notion. Everyday i go out of my mind when i read the newspaper headlines. The country that claims to be the most civilized, has the most nukes!! go figure. GIVE PEACE A FRAKKING CHANCE PLEASE!
