I always think of my mother's story of how when they got back from winter vacation (she was in college) all the men in her class were gone. She and I talked about it every December 7th. I am glad that you did this post.

Bravo.

I didn't have a chance to write today, but I'm glad to see others covered what is all too often forgotten.

I never forget it. It's also on this remembrance day that my grandmother, who raised me, died. She held the values of that generation and imparted some to me, for which I was ever thankful.

Thank you gals,
Rich

My parents had been married only 3 weeks when it happened. Dad had just gotten out of the Army after spending 8 years in; he was back in the next day. All our lives changed because of this event. Can you imagine - no internet, no satellite tv - people huddled around radios waiting to hear what would happen next? Thanks for the post!

I didn't think much of this date but with this beautiful post, I will appreciate more of the heroes which sacrifice their lives in exchange for freedom.

Thank you. The History channel had an excellent program on the attack of Pearl Harbor.

of course, we have to remember the other "side" of Pearl Harbor, too....to not do so would be to ignore the facts!
