Atomic Bomb Explosion

This is a photograph of an atomic bomb explosion. I’m posting this to make people aware of the dangers of nuclear testing and warfare. Having my baby sister under a cancer threat brought up the old grief of losing two of my young cousins that are her age because they were Downwinders, victims of radioactive fallout during the era of atomic bomb testing in the Nevada desert. Cows ate the grass that had radioactive ash on it. Their milk concentrated the radioactivity. Unsuspecting mothers gave the milk to their children. My book Fatal Winds follows a young genius who helps build the bomb and later becomes an activist against bomb testing because he sees the plight of the Downwinders – children being the most vulnerable.
