I do not remember ever learning that December 7th, 1941 was the day it happened..I have always just known. I am sure someone sat me down at some point and told me, but that memory is long since gone.
Too many people my age and younger cannot tell you the date the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. I find that not only odd, but frankly...sad. Sometimes younger generations take the view that if it didn't happen in their lifetime...it isn't worth learning about. How wrong can they be?
So I ask you to take today and remember that freedom is not free, and never has been. As long as there have been societies..there have also been wars.
