It is almost impossible to comprehend, but I grew up in an age when A-Bomb attacks from our enemy were real threats.  Yes, even in my elementary school in Sidney, NY in the 1950s.

We had drills.  We hid under desks.  We lined the hallways of Pearl Street Elementary School and "put our heads in our elbows" to save ourselves from a nuclear holocaust.

It was surreal;.  And like I said, it is almost impossible to think we lived in a time like that!

This was our training drill.  Do you remember "Duck and Cover?"
