There was a time when America was a team, when the free world had the tremors and looked to us for help. There was a time when we made sacrifices without complaint, supported our president without question and honored the standards of decency. There was a time of American patriotism and pride, of hope and love and humility. It was World War II and the nation was one. This book is about those days, specifically about Oak Ridge, Tennessee and the war at home; about the thousands upon thousands of everyday Americans who joined hands as strangers in a near classless society and secretly pulled off the greatest scientific experiment in history - the making of the atomic bomb. We, the Oak Ridge High Class of 1952, were their children and we, too, joined hands as strangers. We have never let go. In our mid-seventies now, we came home for a last reunion in the summer of 2010 and brought our stories with us -memories of our working parents and our neighbors and the genius scientists who lived together behind a secret curtain and helped create the miracle of Oak Ridge, the womb of the Atomic Age. What did we see there, what did we hear there and whatever happened to them and to us?
