Pearl Harbor Day: A date which will live in infamy
My apologies for posting this so late today, it has been a busy week but that is a sorry excuse for not getting this up in time.
When Americans went to bed on December 6th, 1941 America was at peace. (Although America was secretly helping the British against Germany the citizenry was unaware.) But when Americans woke up on Sunday, December 7th they learned that war was inevitable because early in the morning Imperial Japan conducted a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor which left 2,400 dead. The wars in the Pacific and Europe became WWII and America was called upon to free the world of tyranny. It was a call which was answered by the greatest generation–a generation which is sadly almost gone.
We must never forget what happened that day and we must never let out guard down again.
