Today is the “day that will live in infamy” or so we were told by President Roosevelt that cold fateful December day in 1941. He believed it whole-heartedly as the whole country did when he said it. It has only been 71 yrs. and we seem to have forgotten. September 11th may have overshadowed this event as it was only 11 yrs. ago but are we so busy that we can’t take time to remember the thousands that died or were injured on this very important day. There are still people living that remember this day pretty clearly and yet, locally, little is mentioned on the news media outlets. In actuality, December 7th 1941, is one of the most important days in US history. The attack by Japan on Pearl Harbor, launched the US into WWII changing the world dynamic forever. So let’s remember our heroes, our survivors, and our freedom by flying our flags at half staff today and every December 7th. Let’s show them we haven’t forgotten and teach the new generations not to forget!
