Awakenings Past Remembered...
This day, sixty-seven years ago...
On a lazy, Sunday morning quite like this one while most were asleep, the United States suffered a surprise attack by Imperial Japan on our naval station at Pearl Harbor in Oahu, Hawaii. 2,403 people lost their lives, 1,178 were wounded in that attack and America was plunged into the Second World War the very next day when Congress, at the urging of President Roosevelt, declared war on Japan.
We honor those that lost their lives and thank them for their sacrifice.

May we never forget the holocaust-equal atrocities committed by the unrepentant Japanese Empire against humankind.
Anonymous, The unrepentant Japanese Empire that you speak of no longer exists... It's just Japan now, and they are our allies. Let's try and maintain some perspective.
That being said, we all owe a great debt to the thousands of brave souls who sacrificed everything to ensure the end of the axis powers' reign. A debt we will never be able to repay.
You're right, unrepentant Japan. They don't teach it in the schools, so we need to remember double hard for the both of us.
May we not remember the Iraqi Holocaust, the Russian Holocaust, and all the genocide we are ignoring around the world because it has nothing to do with our economic interests!!!
oops I meant to say forget, not remember!
Ok I take back what I said, not on this day! If the owner of the blog can erase my post it would be much appreciated!
Every country is pretty horrible if you remember things!
