• Lethal war causes huge grief and damage
  • This pain and sorrow makes it much harder to achieve peace
  • We can protect our rights and freedoms without killing people
  • If we do not change our habit of using guns and bombs in disputes between nations, inevitably we will stumble into nuclear warfare. (There are still huge stocks of nuclear weapons on the planet – viz:
    ‘More than two decades after the end of the Cold War, approximately 15,700 nuclear warheads remain in the arsenals of eight states (China, France, Israel, India, Pakistan, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States) of which approximately 4,100 are actively deployed…a large amount of fissile material, including directly weapons-useable highly enriched uranium and separated plutonium, still exists in the world today.’ (http://www.nti.org/analysis/reports/nuclear-disarmament/)
  • We can do better.
