Sticks and stones break my bones

(but words will never hurt me…)
I was so angry earlier this month when a family squabble hurt me, but when you compare the words of the old nursery rhyme, and apply them to the awful deed of the Hiroshima Bomb, dropped 68 years ago on 6th August, my family squabble becomes totally  insignificant.
In Hiroshima on that day 250,000 Japanese were either incarcerated or suffered an agonising death within days from radiation caused by the world’s first atomic bomb.
World leaders today claim that such a catastrophe will never happen again.
So why do we stockpile these weapons of mass destruction?

Now 70, I'm getting back into website development and brand protection, as well as showcasing the delightful artistic talents of my beautiful wife Lynne. My projection will encompass a lifetime of database marketing, as well as the Christian democratic socialist ideals of my wife and I.
