Sixty nine years ago on Aug. 6, 1945, an atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, followed by another on Nagasaki, on Aug. 9. In memory of these events, the kindle version of my novel, Buying Time: Beating Swords into Plowshares, will be available for 99 cents.
Visit the Cold War era of Ronald Reagan, the “Star Wars” Strategic Defense Initiative and MAD – Mutual Assured Destruction. While the doomsday clock clicked to three minutes to midnight, small groups of protestors risked their lives and freedom in civil disobedience at nuclear weapon’s sites. Join one such group which includes a rabble rousing Catholic priest and Methodist minister, a kindergarten teacher, and a Quaker homemaker, as they symbolically beat swords into plowshares, or in this case, hammer on a B-52 bomber. Arrested and spending time in jail, they bought the world time through doing time.
