Yesterday, after two days of prayer, discussion, reading, writing, and a well-constructed workshop with our lawyer, Blake Kremer, we had our day in court, or – at least 3 hours of it. It was surprisingly stirring, to hear 6 of us testify in different ways to the intolerable risk we take and the very real harm we do in nurturing nuclear weapons. Nurturing? Harboring? Brandishing? Better: worshiping, because that’s what we’re doing. We are depending on our nuclear weapons to keep us safe and that is a fatal illusion.
Did I say that Blake is an outstanding legal advocate? What a man! His closing statement was a thing of beauty.
