BEDN 19 – Newsflash

Day 19 – Talk about something that is in the news today.

I said it before, I don’t really follow the news these days.

As I hardly ever buy a newspaper, the way I mostly keep up (or rather don’t) with current affairs is through links on blogs and on social media platforms etc. So consequently I am always a little behind with what is going on in the world!

For todays post I want to share a video and some links. They are kind of relevant to each other.
Here is the video some random posted on my Facebook wall recently –

Its a time lapse video showing every nuclear bomb explosion since 1945. It is as dull as dishwater to be honest, but it makes its point.

Next is a link to a blog post on A Girl Called Jack about a remarkable women who died aged 108 last week. Hetty Bower was a founding member of CND and an inspiration to us all to stand up for what we believe in.

In her own words:

“We may not win by protesting.
But if we don’t protest, we will lose.
If we stand up to them, there is always a chance we will win.”
