Remember Pearl Harbor

Became the battle cry of WW II as President Roosevelt (FDR) uttered these words, “Sunday, December 7, 1941, a day that will live in infamy.” Thus on that fateful morning, the United States was propelled into WW II by the attack that took place as our Pacific Fleet lay at anchor.

The last known Survivor, Lieutenant Commander Lou Conter, celebrated his 102nd Birthday in September.

As we commemorate the 82nd anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, a thought comes to mind. Will “Remember Pearl Harbor,” ”Remember the Maine” and “Remember the Alamo” become forgotten or irrelevant. Will 9/11 succumb to the same fate? Not because those that were there or were aware of it are gone. But because those events have been relegated to the back pages of History books or are routinely ignored by many schools as they “preach” not “teach.”

Unfortunately, there has been a tremendous cost in the loss of lives in these tragic events. Thank God for our brave troops and first responders who have been involved in them. In this land of plenty and freedoms, with all of our problems, people still yearn to come to live here.

However, please remember “Freedom is not free.”
