  2. Let's never forget. It's tough to believe it was 70 years ago that the whole Pearl Harbour atrocity happened. Great post buddy.

  7. With getting the kids off to school, getting myself to work and all the other junk going on I am ashamed to say I had forgot it was Dec 7th. Thank you for the reminder.

  9. Thanks, everyone! Sadly, I could add many, many more tragic events. In many, many other countries.
    Back to the "Insane Asylum" of Penwasser Place in a couple days.

  10. Holy crap. Was that 70 years ago? I thought it was last week. My how time flies.

    I do remember it like it really was yesterday. I came home from church and neighbors were gathered in our living room, crying and everyone talking at once and that was the beginning of my coming of age. Most kids get their coming of age with sex on the beach at summer camp but mine started with the grim reality of war. My Father disappeared in the Navy the next day, where he spent the next 4 years. I know you spent longer and I salute you for that.
    Thanks for posting the reminder.

  11. Sadly, we will hear (actually, already have) a "where were you on 9/11?"
    Even sadder that we don't even need to say anything more than "9/11."
    Human beings can suck.

  12. Can't believe it's been that long! My grandparents used to talk about it like it was yesterday. Probably the same way I will talk about 9-11.

  14. It is even sadder to note that everywhere on this planet there are strings of dates being remembered and all for the wrong reasons. On this occassion 'Lest we Forget': Pearl Harbour.

  17. It didn't even get much of a mention on the news. That is just really sad.
