On January 3, 2017, I enlisted my wife and my California based coordinator and his staff, to help promote a renewed global awareness regarding the threat posed by the worldwide expansion of nuclear weapons. At present there are no less than 10 major country states engaged in the development and stockpiling of nuclear weapons. Some nuclear initiatives concentrate on developing sources of energy and defense, many others are centered around offense measures to dominate the world.
Our target audience are the Millennials: those 30 to 35 years in age.
The future belongs to the Millennials. Our objective is to instill an awareness among young people. They and those who follow are guardians of the future. The launching of nuclear weapons against other nations of the world has the potential of ending life on Earth. The Chesapeake Station series, a futuristic expose into this growing phenomenon. Episode One, Evil Never Sleeps (Amazon.com) begins in the year 2188.
Signatories of to the NPT (The Non-Proliferation Nuclear Arms Treaty) include the USA, the UK, China, France, Russia, India, North Korea, and Pakistan. Several others such as Iraq and Israel, etc. are engaged in the development of such weapons.At present, there is an estimated 10,144 nuclear weapons world-wide..
We booked a world-wide initiative on board the cruise ship Pacific Princess out of Fort Lauderdale, FL. The cruise stops in 27 countries over 111 days. At this writing, we’re sailing in the French Polynesian Islands of Bora Bora and Papeete in the South Pacific Ocean. We have recently crossed the International Date Line and zero degrees of latitude.
We boarded a Jet Blue Flight from Boston to Fort Lauderdale with several suitcases, three of which were full of books. My baggage handler attempted to lift the luggage containing the books and was surprised to find them so heavy. When he hauled the luggage on top of the carry-on cart, the entire load of bags tipped over. “What’s in here,” he gasped. I just laughed and said, “books.”
“You like to read I guess,” he mused.
“Actually.” I said, “I’m on the first segment of a book tour.”
I helped him restore the load and we headed for the gate.
The 650 passenger ship is scheduled for six segments, and is completely booked with travelers from around the world. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many of them to discuss events of the day, especially as regards my writings and the need to pay attention to world affairs. We’ve now begun a give-a-way program for those I feel would benefit from reading one of the three books I’ve brought along. Ticket to Ride, the Promise of America, Chesapeake Station, it Began with Serenity, and Episode one of the Chesapeake Station series, Evil Never Sleeps.” Visit the website: www.donhussey.com for more information; be sure to open the YouTube tab, “Media Room.” at the top.
I will be receiving two additional shipments of books when we dock in Auckland, New Zealand and in Hong Kong. over the next several weeks.
From New Zealand we will be docking in Australia, Singapore, Cambodia, and eventually Abu Dhabi, and Honk Kong, before a passage through the Suez Canal into the Mediterranean.
I will continue to post updates on our travels throughout this initiative. Earth, the little blue planet, tucked inside the vastness of the Milky Way Galaxy, is the place we call home. As generations pass, the continued future of mankind depends largely upon the use and misuse of nuclear technology.
Chesapeake Station, an orbiting space station, is in a fixed orbit around the planet Echo, within the star system Tau Ceti, one of Earth’s closest habitable zones.
