Seventy years ago an attack was made that unified this country like nothing that had ever been seen or has it since. Most of us don’t know what that was like, others will never forget. Last March I was fortunate to go to Pearl Harbor and see the Arizona Memorial. It was hard to picture what it was like without the busy city behind it. Despite the noise of the cars and planes flying around, the place was eerily quiet.
December 7th, 1941 was the day that a Japanese carrier force launched a surprise attack on the American Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor. While demonstrating the power of Naval Airplanes it lead way to the end of the might of battleships. It was the day that ratified the people of this country to join in one of the bloodiest and most costly wars we had ever seen. They fought at home and on foreign fronts for our safety, our rights as individuals, and our freedom. May people remember what happened that day December 7th, 1941, the lives that were lost and the families hurt. May we never forget what happened in that War so history doesn’t repeat itself.
