Her family lived next door to a physicist who they “knew was doing something secret in his work, something so secret he couldn’t even tell his wife or his daughter. To me that was the clue that something very evil happening, because how could a man keep a secret from his wife or his children? This secret has dominated this industry for 70 years, that’s why it hasn’t ended. 7.2 trillion dollars has gone into that which has only to be transformed, and regretted. . .”

“Sister Megan Rice talks with the media after being released from custody at the Blount County Detention Center in Maryville, Tenn., Friday, Aug. 3, 2012. Rice, along with Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed, sneaked into the Y-12 nuclear weapons plant last week, and was released on her own recognizance with Walli under a set of conditions set by federal magistrate G. Clifford Shirley Friday. Boertje-Obed remains in custody at the facility.”
Yesterday, Wednesday, May 8, 2013 the three were found guilty.

Despite pleas they act as “the conscience of your community,” a federal jury found an 83-year-old nun and two fellow protesters guilty of interfering with national security last July when, armed with paint, Bibles, white roses and crime-scene tape, they broke into the most secure part of a Tennessee nuclear processing plant known as the “Fort Knox of uranium.” Though over-reaching prosecutors were so embarrassed they threw the first-ever felony charges – with possible sentences of 30 years – at the activists, Sister Megan Rice, Michael Walli and Greg Boertje-Obed had no remorse for their actions and were pleased to reach one of the most secure parts of the facility. Rice, who has been arrested 40 or 50 times for anti-nuclear actions, said she was only sorry she’d waited so long to do it. God bless.
“My regret was I waited 70 years,” she said. “It is manufacturing that which can only cause death.”
