Why Peace?

Why Peace? This is the Powerpoint for a lecture I gave at SUNY Adirondack Community College in Queensbury, New York in March 2010. “GF” refers to Glens Falls, New York, the community where the college sits. “N.w.” refers to nuclear weapons. The Japanese art was created by hibakushas–survivors of the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan in August 1945; they depict the real experiences of survivors in the aftermath of the dropping of the world’s first-used nuclear weapons.
