Letters to the Editor


End threat of global suicide

To sustain a pleasant consciousness, it is vital that we donít overload on the bad news of whatís going on around us and beyond. We need equal if not more time with lifeís pleasant and hopeful events. A balance is essential for personal national and international well being.

In this vein, some very promising life and planetary saving actions have been taken that arenít well known. It has been reported recently, by John Tierney of the New York Times, that tens of thousands of the deadly 50,000 nuclear warheads that the U.S. and former Soviet Union once had pointed at each other have now been dismantled in an agreement to abolish 90 percent of these weapons.

This is a huge step away from the abyss of global suicide. Hopefully it will not take a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) incident or accident for the US, Russia and nations of the world to continue on this urgent, life-protecting path.  It could and should be a top priority to unite all of humanity who share vulnerable life on our precious planet earth.
