  • In Remembrance: December 7, 1941
  • "... a date which will live in infamy..." were the some of the first words from President Franklin D. Roosevelt's speech on December 8, 1941 referring to the barbaric attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii on the day before, December 7, 1941. After his speech, Congress declared war on Japan and thus the USA entered World War II. I hope everyone took a few moments today to say a silent prayer in remembrance of that day and all the brave people, civilian as well as military personnel who lost their lives in that surprise attack. God Bless the USA.

  • A couple of years ago I was in a check out line in our local super market on Pearl Harbor day.
    I asked the young girl at check out if she knew what day it was
    She said December 7th.
    I said Pearl Harbor day.
    She said that was then, This is now.
    I said to her too bad her grandfather didn't have to hit the beach at Okinawa.
    She asked why.
    I said probably he would not have made it back and she would not be here
    to disrespect those who gave their all so she could say such shut.
    The guy in line behind me said right on.
    I don't know what they are teaching kids in school now, but it seems they
    are coming out dumber than a bag of hammers.

  • Yep, it's the marshmallow world that Owe created by apologizing to every nation that was ever in a war with US. Bear in mind many US school history books have downplayed or eliminated past wars, some starting with Viet Nam and going back. Oh, they might mention the Revolutionary War and The Civil War but little or no mention of the World wars and the Korean Conflict. It's the 'there are no losers, and every one is a winner' mentality too, and everyone gets a 'participation' trophy. I se so many people nowadays, mostly always men, wearing their color caps, Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Coast Guard, and I will always go up and say thank you for your service to America and shake their hands. Some will tear up but all thank me right back, and say they are grateful and proud to have served. Thank you to all...
