"When the next war comes I want the first bomb to drop on my head."
Ruff and his family have these raw memories for life now. Tilman Ruff was included in the (American Strategic Policy) limiting the use of nuclear weapons. When Ruff was a teen he was heavily influenced by both his family and his brother who is also an activist. During Ruff's course of studying medical studies, he had 2 doctors saying nuclear war was also a threat. One of them was Dr.Helen Caldicott, an international physician for prevention of nuclear war. The number of nuclear weapons was up to 70,000 in 1986, but since then it has been reduced to 23,000.
