My mom was born on this day 84 years ago.  I’m sure her birthday in 1941 wasn’t the best birthday she ever had.  That day was the beginning of suffering for many Americans, including those Japanese-Americans who were interned unjustly and for so long.

Although war isn’t pleasant to think about, we need to remember and to teach our children what happened and why, as best we can.  This short video serves both to honor those who fell at Pearl Harbor and as a simple reminder.

    I think it is so important that new generations do know about these happenings.

    Dare I make a comment about that last sentence Janet..a quiet smile…the two clause perhaps both could start with ‘is’..

    As they say, those who are not aware of history are condemned to repeat it… You’re doing your bit, Janet. 🙂

  4. Thanks for this post, it is important to remember and to learn.

    It was a brutal attack, to say the least….
