Letters to the Editor: We must avoid nuclear warfare

It has been 72 years since America dropped the atomic bombs on Japan — August 7, 1945, and August 9, 1945.
No more Hiroshimas! No more Nagasakis! It is past time to end the threat and horror of nuclear war!
One estimation of casualties is about 200,000 human beings, with continuing torturous deaths from radiation for years; with extensive destruction of the whole natural environment, and hospitals, police and fire departments and government agencies.
Please note that America and its adversaries are increasing the weapons capabilities and in the U.S., as it stands now, Donald Trump has the sole authority to use them.
We the People do not want another nuclear catastrophe.
In my opinion, we all need to make our voices heard in whatever ways possible. One way would be urging our members of Congress to use their leadership and make every effort to reduce the threat and devastation of nuclear war, by making it a top priority in Congress.
Thank you for your actions.
Bunny Daubner
