Alma Haus Press is about seeking knowledge and then pondering upon what has been learned. When we feel passionate about a subject we will research it more, or just let our passion out on the page, sometimes in prose and sometimes in poetry.

History Demands Action
Our Hidden Shame of the Cold War:
Our Atomic Veterans
Be on sands or water.
They, We, were treated the same:
All showered with radiation.
They: Sworn to secrecy, to tell NO ONE.
What Was Done
To Them, to US.
In the Hot Cold War.
We were showered with radiation.
They told NO ONE.
History's Events Continue
Our Health Factors have been hidden,
Keeping US poor to support Global WAR
On US and Them and Our Planet!
Stop now while we still can.
Change course, redirect our aim,
No time to divide our ranks.
Let US conquer our past mistakes.
It is imperative:
History Demands Action!
If life is to continue on our world
Work must be done to save it.~~Bridget E. Smith, January 11, 2016
January 2014 -- Bridget E. Smith, stands next to poster announcing Atomic Veterans Day on July 16, 2001. Smith designed and created the poster. Atomic veterans and family met to commemorate their service at the American Legion Hall #158 in Tigard, Oregon.
Atomic Veterans meetings have been held here quarterly now for more than a decade. Credit for these meetings in large part belongs to Keith R Whittle, Atomic Veterans History Project and the National Association of Atomic Veterans (NAAV).

We all know. . .
It won't be long
Until we are All History.
