Pearl Harbor Day

Today is Pearl Harbor Day.

First, a history lesson. In 1941 the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in an attempt to cripple the US fleet in the Pacific. It worked. 2,402 were killed and 1,282 wounded.

This is the day we set aside to remember those who died with no warning, and no provocation.

Candles burn in my house most of the day. It's good to remember. It's important not to forget. And it's imperative to be prepared to go to war to defend yourself and your country. It's even more important to win that war, no matter the cost.
