That day 69 years in our past was also a day filled with defining moments, in a world that already seemed insane. On December 7th, 1941 when the first bomb dropped on Pearl Harbor, America’s future was defined by our reaction to the terrible carnage left after the deadly attack. We had no way of knowing what the future would bring, but we now know that the resolute action taken by our government and military saved us for what we were and not what some shameless “empire” would have us become.
Now, there are occurrences within and without our borders that threaten our traditional way of life … still our brave servicemen and servicewomen fight on and on. This is a day to remember the soldiers, sailors, marines and civilians who lost their precious lives on the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and those that lost their lives during the wars waged worldwide since then.
I have provided a link to images from the attack on Pearl Harbor. Please take some time to view them and stop when you can to pray for and thank our military. The link is below:
