“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.” — Albert Einstein
“Reality leaves a lot to the imagination.” — John Lennon
Imagine there are still 27,000 nuclear weapons in the world, over 15 years after the end of the Cold War.
Imagine that 12,000 of these weapons are deployed, and that 3,500 of them are on hair-trigger alert, ready to be fired in a matter of moments.
Imagine that the use of a single nuclear weapon could destroy a city, and the use of a small number could destroy civilization.
Imagine the horror and devastation of Hiroshima, and multiply it by every city and country on earth.
Imagine that a nuclear war could end human life on our planet, and that the capacity to initiate a nuclear war rests in the hands of only a small number of men.
Imagine that nuclear weapons threaten the future of humanity and all life.
Imagine that nuclear weapons challenge as never before our capacity to control violence and live peacefully.
Imagine that we are not helpless in the face of this threat, and that we can rise to the challenge of ending the nuclear weapons era.
Imagine that together we can make a difference and that you are needed to create a nuclear weapons free world.
Imagine a world without the threat of nuclear devastation, a world that you helped to create.
