Has Everyone Forgotten ?
Today is Wednesday, December 7, 2005. It was a Sunday...December 7, 1941 that Pearl Harbor was attacked, 64 years ago. I see there is no mention of it on the front page of my local paper (probably there's a little blurb buried deep in some section that no one reads). There was a slight mention of it on the local Seattle news this morning. And only one of the many calendars (yes, I'm a calendar freak) in my house mentions it. I don't remember it either..but I do know that 4 weeks later, to the day, I was born and that 6 months after that my dad left for his basic training with the U S Army. I'm sure there are thousands of families who remember that they gave their sons and daughters to go and fight the battle that became known as World War II. And I'm sure the relatives of those many dear people who lost their lives that day, remember it too. How soon we forget......Linda
