"BALLISTIC MISSILE THREAT INBOUND TO HAWAII. SEEK IMMEDIATE SHELTER. THIS IS NOT A DRILL."
Let me first say that I do NOT blame any of this on President Trump. The North Korean leader is clearly despotic and has threatened us multiple times. Regardless of who was the president there would have been panic.
My hope is simply that there's something positive we can take away from this.
Many of us have lived with the threat of nuclear attack our entire lives, so it's understandable that we never stop to consider how terrible the next major war will be. Additionally, the weaponry is so much more advanced than the last time the major powers came to blows that it might simply be impossible to imagine the horrors that await us should there be a nuclear war. At the very least we should all be sobered up to this fact.
