Public School Air Raid Drills – Do You Remember?

In the 1960’s everyone was urged to dig holes in the backyard to erect shelters, ensuring survival in the event of a nuclear attack. The shelters were to be carefully stocked with everything necessary to sustain life, including water, non-perishable, canned goods, clean clothing and of course activities, educational and reading material.

In reality, a personal fallout shelter would have been comparable to a dungeon. Not to mention that if we made it through an actual, nuclear blast, it would have only been a matter of time before we perished, anyway… albeit, without our creature comforts.

Back in the day, there was no such thing as “instant obliteration.” There was always a warning system in place. Today, although the threat of human annihilation still exists, because of technology, there would be no time to prepare. From a human standpoint, war sucks and always has. Can’t we all just get along?
