Today is 7 December 2015. It is Pearl Harbor Day — the day we set aside to remember the Japanese surprise attack on the Army and Navy bases located in the Hawaiian Islands in 1941. Each year I take a few moments to remember the service men and women, and the civilians, who lost their lives that day. While I hold no grudge against the Japanese (it is history, after all), I also remember that we have enemies both internal and external who would destroy our nation, our culture, and our way of life for their own purposes.
Today is the day to remember Pearl Harbor. I remember. I appreciate the sacrifice that our service men and women make each and every day. I don’t think it’s just a job.
