The seventh day of December, 1941, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. Let us take a moment to remember our fallen soldiers from that day and all that have followed.

I say "amen" as well. Visiting the Pearl Harbor memorial a few years back was a moving and solemn experience. It is a day to pray and to remember.

I'm having a wee quiet moment to myself(phew, baby is asleep!) to think on this.
Thanks Sandy, as a Brit I would not have remembered!

I visited pearl harbor back in the 80's and it was a very moving experience. That day truly changed the world forever...

I had the chance to visit there as well. I'm really glad I had the opportunity to spend some time there. Very moving. Thanks for the reminder, Sandy.

My grandfather flew for the Army. He rarely talks about it, but I am still proud of him.

I have not had the opportunity to visit the Pearl Harbor memorial, but we did visit the concentration camps when we went to Germany. I went in high school and Germany was still divided. The horror and sadness that still filled those places was something I will never forget. As horrible as the bombing was, I am glad the US decided to get involved and help put an end to the atrocities that were being rained down on innocent men, women and children.
It took many brave men and women to achieve that goal and the world will forever be in their debt.
May they rest in peace.

Amen ~Sandy~ Thank-You

I wonder if RUBY lives close by the base to be able to go to today's Pearl Harbor Ceremony.

Last night in "Nightline" they talked about the last 20+ soldiers still Alive from that day that were flown there for today's Ceremony and that probably this will be their last trip to the site and will not be able to attend next year's event cause the may be to fragile to fly.

How fortunate and unfortunate it must have been for them all these Years.

Blessings on the remaining soldiers! God Bless them for their service in an awful period of our history. And God bless all the other service men and women that have served before and since then. Thank you Sandy. Hugs, Jan L.
