70 Years After Pearl Harbor

Seventy years ago, the Japanese attacked the United States at Pearl Harbor. This attacked brought the United States fully into Would War II. As part of the the attack plan, the Japanese also attacked the Philippines and other islands in the Pacific. I would like to take some time to remember all who served and those who died in World War II.

While I was visiting with Jo Anne in the Philippines, we took the time to visit a couple historical locations which have had reading the history of World War II more real. If you are fortunate enough to live near a place where a battle or other action of the war took place, go there and reflect on the sacrifice that the brave men and women made on both sides. If you do not live near a location that was part of World War II history, take the time to talk with a veteran of World War II. Ask if your can record you interview. They are passing away now and there is no better way to learn about history then by someone who was there when in happened.

Why does it take a Pearl Harbor or a 911 to wake people in this country up that we should work together for a common cause and stop scrambling for political position and personal power?

Thx for the reminder

I guess it is just human nature.
