From Cuba to Halifax

STORY BY: Robert Power
YEAR: 1962

Bob takes us back to the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962. He was 14 years old, and terrified. So he pulled out a geography book, and drew a 2100 mile circle around Cuba. That was the distance he was told a missile could be fired. Halifax was 2200 miles away from Cuba - he was safe by 100 miles. Thanks for sharing, Robert.
