Dec 7 1941,,, where were you,, pops?..
Remember that well..I was in our living room playing go fish with my little brother when we heard the news on the radio..Dad was cussing and mom was crying..
From our trip last year.
A day to remember. But also, I think, to think about.
What appeared at first to be a tragedy almost beyond dimension turned out to have some very positive effects. Yes, even for Japan -- which now is a free, modern and democratic republic. One of the great contributors to world prosperity and peace.
America found within itself the courage, not just to go on, but to triumph -- this leading to an era of peace and prosperity like none before.
How much we, today, can learn from that generation! (And indeed, IMO, must if we, too, are to prosper.)
Thank you for posting, Papa Joe. I will never forget.
We laid over at Pearl om my way over..Didn't get to see much but on the way home I pulled a 72 pass and saw it all...Got to talk with some people that were there when it all went down..
I'm forever grateful that I was not born sooner then I was..
Thanks @Papa Joe.
In remembrance of those that died on that horrible day. God bless them all and the survivors, most who are not with us anymore, and may any living survivors find some peace of mind from the unprovoked, sneak attack on Pearl Harbour.
I can’t say it any better than that Dan.
And little more than three and a half years later the whole thing was over. We all owe a debt of gratitude to the 'sleeping giant' that rose up and helped crush an international scourge on two fronts with unrivalled military, industrial and organisational expertise and power, without which the killing would have gone on for much, much longer and the world would have been a very different and much nastier place. The greatest generation? You betcha.
