I bring this up because I think we are close to forgetting about this day or simply filing it away as another event in history that happened a long time ago. Growing up I remember all of my teachers talking about Pearl Harbor day and asking us to remember those who gave their lives. It was mentioned as a day of remembrance and reverence. Every newspaper would carry a story of Pearl Harbor on the front page and include interviews of PH survivors or a story of survivors who gathered to observe the day.
Today, the PH story was a tiny one on page 3 of my local paper. Myabe it's the fact that the number of people who remember that day occurring is shrinking. Regardless, I wanted to pause, and make you pause, to remember this day. A toast to those brave men and women who survived or gave their life there will be in order this evening.
