Focus on the Family is releasing a new documentary called Irreplaceable. The film will arrive in theaters this Tuesday, May 6, for one night only.

Nuclear bombs have long been feared as our enemies’ means of mass murder, the destruction of our major cities, and the lasting effect of the radioactive fallout. The EMP Commission was first established in 2001, re-authorized in 2006, and has released two separate recommendations to Congress (2004 and 2008) regarding necessary steps to reduce our vulnerability to a similar type of attack. According to the reports, while the detonation of a high-altitude nuclear device above the United States would not immediately render visible damage to our metropolitan areas, it is equally devastating to our country and its citizens given the impact it would have on our national power grid.Read more
