Trust is the biggest factor in nations and people, I believe. We have to increase it through education and peace building.”

I am inspired by the writings of L. Ron Hubbard, who during the 1950s and 1960s wrote and lectured extensively on the subject of nuclear war, radiation, and its effects in an effort to bring about 
a calmer, more rational attitude to abolish nuclear weapons and seek real peace among nations.

As the representative for the Toronto Area Interfaith Council, I became more acquainted with the issue and with the Hiroshima Nagasaki Day Coalition members. They are real heroes trying to change our nuclear policies and educate the general public. I admire them very much. As one becomes more educated about nuclear disarmament, one becomes more dedicated to seeing it occur. We are on that journey. Trust is the biggest factor in nations and people, I believe. We have to increase it through education and peace building.

“On the day when we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on Earth,” said L. Ron Hubbard.
