I have three prayers that I will repeat every day — starting today — for the rest of my life.

I pray that the generations to follow me will find a peace never before known to mankind.

I pray that a nuclear war, which has been given birth under this administration, will not come to pass.

I pray, finally, that I live long enough to see all those in authority, responsible for this new nuclear threat, be held responsible.

Those responsible have chosen not to represent the people but to serve a president who has failed his electorate and whose decisions threaten to reduce this country of ours to rubble.
