To the victims of the Manhattan-Rochester Coalition, who each had a right to know.
To victims of warfare and war-related activities around the globe.
To my former work colleague, as well as my former neighbor, for asking questions about
their victimization and entrusting me with their personal histories, which enabled me to
know of, and explore this issue.
To three incredible men in my life: Steve, Drew, and Jake, who are a constant reminder
of what is right and good in the world.
To my husband, who enthusiastically supported me throughout this project, and who was
always willing to engage in discussions about chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons,
over coffee and cornflakes.
