Something we can do

Dear Editor,
All my life, our civilization has been under threat of extinction by nuclear warfare. I find that puts a big crease in one’s sense of well-being and confidence in the powers that govern the world. You see, it was my native land, the United States of America, that is still the only nation to have ever used nuclear bombs on other people. That immense power to annihilate is currently vested in the hands of a few madmen and beyond the control of average citizens of planet Earth. One misstep by the Donald Trump’s, Vladimir Putin's or Kim Jung Un's of the world, and a chain reaction could be unleashed, that could end life as we know it, via the absurd construct of Mutually Assured Destruction, or MAD, as it was portrayed in the movie Dr. Strangelove. Perhaps some scattered remnants of humanity would survive, but it has been said, that the living will envy the dead.
