July 16th – 70th Anniversary of 1 of the WORST Dates in Human History – not so good for the Wildlife either

Today (July 17, 2015)  is the 70th Anniversary of one of the Most Horrific Events in Human History – the successful test of the 1st Atomic bomb right here in New Mexico. This would lead to Humans having the ability to destroy ALL (or most of) Life on OUR Planet & Destroy God’s Creation! The successful test lead President Truman to demand Unconditional Surrender of the Japanese even though we knew, because we had broken the Japanese codes pretty early in the war, that Japan was trying to Surrender to 2 European Countries & the only thing they wanted was safety for the Emperor, which is exactly what we gave them so obviously We DID NOT have to drop those 2 bombs on Hiroshima & Nagasaki!

For any of you who have seen the movie that Stuart Overbey & I made, The Forgotten Bomb   forgottenbomb.com  you would have seen how we presented all these Facts & have a film clip of President Truman talking about how we wanted to keep the Emperor safe so that we could use himto control the Japanese People. With the 70th Anniversary of the end of World war II in Europe already passed & the 70th Anniversary of the war in Asia will happen in August WHY do we still have OUR Troops stationed in both Germany & Japan?

I’d ask you ALL (and to pass this on to your Circle of Family & Friends) to Please do what you can to Rid the World of these Horrible weapons:  *Sign the Petition

*Call & Write your Congressperson & 2 Senators & tell them that you want the U.S. to live up to what we Signed in the Non-proliferation Treaty – Non-proliferation Treaty – and Get Rid of ALL of Nuclear weapons!

*Join Us in Los Alamos on Sunday August 9th at Ashley Pond for those of us who don’t live in New Mexico you can Join Us for ALL of our Events starting Thursday August 6th in Los Alamos for the 70th Anniversary of Hiroshima, our Nonviolence Conference Aug. 7-8, & concluding Aug. 9th again in Los Alamos for the 70th Anniversary of Nagasaki. You can watch ALL of these Events online Join us online for Los Alamos Event in New Mexico/

The Abolition of nuclear weapons might seem impossible but so did the Abolition of slavery to the early Abolitionists as slavery had been around for thousands of years, and in OUR own Country for hundreds. It just takes hard work & perseverance & We the People can make it Happen! The Nuclear Age started in OUR Country 70 years ago Today so it is fitting that the Nuclear Age would come to an END with the ACTIONS of We the People!
