Obama is My Daddy

Posted Thursday, Apr 15th, 2010 at 9:20pm

I am profoundly relieved. There’s been this giant pink elephant in the room that nobody would talk about. Actually it isn’t a pink elephant, it’s a giant nuclear weapon. No, make that 25,000 nuclear weapons.

My world changed in college in the 1970’s when I first saw footage from the bombing of Hiroshima. That bomb’s firepower was 15 kiloton (equivalent to 15,000 tons of TNT) and it killed well over 100,000 people.

So when I found out that there were thousands of nuclear weapons armed and ready, it made me crazy. How could everybody be walking around so calmly if we were armed with annihilation?

When the cold war eased, I felt hopeful but still concerned. There were still thousands of nuclear weapons, some a powerful as 50,000 kilotons (equivalent to 50,000,000 tons of TNT or 3,300 Hiroshimas), some as small as one hundredth of a kiloton (weighing only 51 pounds).

President Obama’s recent initiative to limit the spread of nuclear materials brings me tremendous hope. Finally, our President has recognized the thousands of “elephants in the room.”

I believe that his recent gathering of nations working towards disarmament in our nation’s capitol is the most significant historical event our country has seen in the past 30 years and will be seen as the beginning of President Obama’s greatest accomplishment.
