Resolution focusing on preventing nuclear war is worthy of support

If there is one thing in Maine we can all agree about, it is protecting children, no matter where they live.

Here in Lewiston, I see examples of that every day — from laws to protect our kids from secondhand smoke to keeping them safe in car seats.

Today, our children are holding active shooter drills in school, while many of us still remember practicing “duck and cover” drills in school to protect us from a nuclear detonation. As someone who has devoted his career to health, I know that prevention is the best way to save lives.
