December 7th seventy years ago is a date that still lives in infamy but is fading into history. Some young people may say, “
Pearl Harbor what is that?” and only know of it from movies.
For the Japanese it was a great success while for us it was a disaster. The disaster galvanized
America and became the cause for the defeat of , Japan
This is a day to pause and remember the more than three thousand that died that day and the millions who died because of it. It is also a day to reflect on the horror of war and pray that some day we will learn to make peace instead. Sadly we are still learning that lesson but some day I hope we will.
