“Duck and Cover”

I grew up in the 1950s when our biggest fear in America was of a nuclear bomb blast -- though in reality, as a child, I felt few fears, and virtually none on a daily basis.

(ahhh yes, “worse than a terrible suntan”…)

I can’t even imagine sitting at a schoolroom desk, worried about being shot in the head (nor being the parent who must drop their child off at the school front door) — the daily reality of today’s students/parents — far scarier than my generation ever felt about the nuisance of a measly atomic bomb.
