The Cold War was a bone-chilling time.
While Americas can-do confidence offered us a sugar frosted promises of a future filled with frost-free fun and abundance, that giddy optimism co-existed with the very real fear of nuclear annihilation.

I would catch a Cold war chill that I could never quite shake.
