1960s nuke fun

When I was in grade school, there was a particularly hot flare of the Cold War going on, and the school was going over plans for what to do if the nukes flew. đź’Ł

After the drill, my teacher said, “y’all know this is ridiculous, right? What are you going to have, half an hour, maybe? It’s not going to matter if you’re here, on the school bus, or at home, it’s going to be over.”

I liked that woman. She dug into a lot of subjects with that directness.
