“I grew up at ground zero during an age of terror. Just 10 miles upwind of my elementary school in Omaha, Nebraska sat Strategic Air Command headquarters, its proud motto posted outside the security gates: ‘Peace Is Our Profession.’ A group of radical nuns had once spray-painted ‘War Is Just a Hobby’ on the sign before being dragged away in cuffs.”
