Is That Radioactivity or the Light Within? December 28, 2017
Toward the end of World War II, Ralph Steinhardt’s father became one of hundreds of experts tasked with developing an atomic bomb at a secret laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico. According to Steinhardt, every night, his father threw away his clothing because it was radioactive. Growing up, Steinhardt was torn over his father’s role in building the bomb, and eventually he turned to Quakerism to find peace… and forgiveness.
