December 7th, 1941

It’s hard to believe that 71 years ago our country experienced an attack that today we remember because it truly is a, as President Roosevelt so brilliantly states, “that will live in infamy.”  Before September 11, 2001 many of us Americans could only imagine the horror that those individuals experienced that day.  Now, I think as a nation we can sympathize with the victims of December 7th, 1941. 

As we prepare for the Holidays with gifts and decorations let us not forget that day. In remembrance of today don’tforget about the days that followed. When the brave men and woman of the U.S. military left the comforts of home to fend for our nation and for those overseas who also deserve the same freedom as we are so blessed to have.

  1. We also need to teach our children what is being sacrificed for them. Many won't remember September 11, just as the current generation doesn't know what happened on December 7.
