This morning I decided to ask the first three people I ran into if they knew what today was. The first two replied with today's date, and the third asked me if it was my birthday. For those who do not know, today is, "a day that will live in infamy," Pearl Harbor day.
On December 7, 1941, the Pearl Harbor Navel Base in Hawaii was invaded by Japanese forces, killing thousands of American soldiers. It's a shame that this sad event which rallied a nation, receives very little mention in today's media.
If you see a veteran today in your travels, especially one who served in WWII, stop, shake their hand, and say thank you for your sacrifice. We enjoy the freedoms we have in our country, primarily due to the sacrifices these men and women made back then. God Bless them & God Bless America.
