The world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children

Wendell Berry, from “The Unforeseen Wilderness: An Essay on Kentucky’s Red River Gorge”

August 29th is the International Day Against Nuclear Tests. It is amazing to me that as recently as 1992 the United States conducted a nuclear test. It gives me just a little hope when I realize almost all of humanity came around to the belief that these tests must stop, and then (with a notable recent exception) actually made that happen — and in a relatively short period of time. I wonder if there might there be hope for us yet?
