70 years have now passed since that terrible morning ..A horrific attack that ushered the US into a horrific war started two years before, with a horrific loss of life, both military and civilian, from so many countries from both Allied and Axis nations. Back then, Japan and the US were bitter enemies ..Today they are strong Allies. Pearl Harbor Through The Eyes of a LIFE Photographer (Photo Gallery) Nation Pauses To Remember Pearl Harbor (CNN Article) I will be taking a few minutes today to reflect on the events that happened 70 years ago, to honor the memories of the 2,402 men who died aboard the ships that were destroyed or damaged - especially the USS Arizona, the USS Oklahoma, the USS West Virginia, and the USS California , as well as the 57 civilians killed in the attack, and the 1,282 military and civilian wounded. I hope others will, as well. May this world never experience a dark time in history again such as this. May there never be another war of this level of depravity and with as devastating a loss of life. May there one day be peace, freedom, and liberty - for everyone.
