IT’S RAINING DEATH. I SAT THERE AND CRIED

LICENSE TO NUKE

I caught a portion of this HBO movie, White Light, Black Rain last Friday. I was supposed to be working on the Dream for Darfur event, as I am the lead organizer of it for Providence, Rhode Island, USA. But I have my television on a lot just for background. I came across this movie and had to sit down and be sucked into the story. The Truth. Nuclear War is one thing for those who lived through it. And another for those who know nothing about its truthful effects. I heard a man say at a dinner party a few years ago that we should just "Nuke 'em over there...in Iraq". In my most polite tone of writing - this is simple ignorant and mindless bluster and ego talking.

Each person on the planet who has a television or the means should see this movie. And all politicians should see it and have to write a public response to it after viewing for public reading.

"All things are on the table" has outlived its usefulness in a world that has country after country building or wanting to build nuclear weapons. You have no respect for Life if you want a world with nuclear weapons. We, the
USA, have no power over which countries have a nuclear bomb. We might want to pretend that we do, but we don't.

The Director talks

On August 9, 1945, the American B-29 bomber, Bock's Car left Tinian carrying Fat Man, a plutonium implosion-type bomb. The primary target was the Kokura Arsenal, but upon reaching the target, they found that it was covered by a heavy ground haze and smoke, pilot Charles Sweeney turned to the secondary target of the Mitsubishi Torpedo Plant at Nagasaki.

Of the 286,00 people living in Nagasaki at the time of the blast, 74,000 were killed and another 75,000 sustained severe injuries.

STOP GENOCIDE

The
Beijing, China 2008 Olympics has chosen this theme:

ONE WORLD, ONE DREAM

And yet,
China has been instrumental in the continuation of the Darfur genocide since its conception

As a human rights activist,

I bring to your attention the four and a half year old genocide in Darfur, Sudan.

WE CAN’T SAY THAT WE CARE ABOUT JUSTICE

WHEN WE DO NOTHING TO STOP THE INJUSTICE

We each have a voice.

We each have a presence.

Let us not be silent.

We have been called to be human
 in the most basic way
 on this subject.  
Where there is a will - there is always a way.  
And where there is no will - there is never a way.
Our collective silence is a weapon used by the genocidaires.

Silence kills.

Complicity encourages and emboldens.

Apathy disgraces us individually and collectively.
We are, each one, responsible for our personal silence.

One World.

One humanity.

One Human Race.

One.

Or Nothing At All.

Genocide flourishes when you and I don’t care enough to do something.

We Can Keep Fighting Our Endless Wars

or

We Can Try Something Else and Really Make History
