Nuclear weapons are extremely dangerous. First created in 1945 by scientists at Los Alamos, New Mexico, the first atomic bomb was dropped on hiroshima in 1945 in an attempt to end WW2. Some of the effects of nuclear weapons are: massive heat waves, radiation caused diseases (such as leukemia), and they have a huge effect on the environment. Since 1945 nuclear weapons have become around 100 times more powerful. Nuclear weapons are NOT only used for killing people, if a nuclear missile was launched into outer space it would create something called and EMP (Electro Magnetic Pulse). An EMP wipes out electrical power and could send the targeted nation back to the eighteen-hundreds technology wise. If any one nation launched a nuclear weapon at another nation, it could provoke other nations and the world would virtually end. To avoid such a conflict and help create peace (a lot) all nations world would just have to give up ALL of their nuclear weapons.

If there is no peace between two countries they eventually have war, overtime if they don't agree on peace the war gets really intense and the use of nuclear weapons will come in mind. Like in World War 2 where U.S.A. and Japan didn't agree on peace and it caused U.S.A. to drop a nuclear bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

This video was chosen to show the damage and horrow that comes from a nuclear blast, and thus



This video shows people that want peace. We chose this video to show that some people do try to get peace.




This peace day remember what can happen when there is no peace. Spread this information to those you know. This peace day try to make a difference in the world. Don't just go through the motions, help create peace. This peace day, do what you can to MAKE the difference and to BE the difference.
