Today is the 79th anniversary of the date “which will live in Infamy”

More than 2,390 Americans lost their lives on Dec. 7, 1941 when Japanese bombers launched a surprise attack on the U.S. military base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. All eight U.S. battleships stationed at Pearl Harbor during the attack were sunk, though all but two – the Arizona and the Oklahoma – later returned to active duty. In addition, nearly 20 American Navy vessels and about 300 aircraft were damaged or destroyed.

The attack –  famously described by President Franklin D. Roosevelt as a “date which will live in infamy” – – propelled America into World War II, a conflict which claimed the lives of some 400,000 U.S. soldiers.

A few days later the architect of the attack, Japans Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto said “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.”

I reflect on this day, because although I was not in the Navy, had I been around at this time, I certainly would have been effected and sent to WWII….Makes you think, the people at Pearl Harbor were enjoying a beautiful Sunny Day, then just before 8am all hell broke loose…. We may have the technological advances now a days to detect this particular incident from happening you have to live each day to be your absolute best, because you just never know when it will be your last.

We dont recognize Pearl harbor day as we do Memorial Day, Veterans Day, but I ask you all take a moment and reflect on how the Bombing of Pearl Harbor has effected who we are today.

Moment of Silence for those that lost their life at Pearl Harbor, and their families
