On Sunday morning, December 7, 1941, peacetime in the Hawaiian Islands exploded at Pearl Harbor. In a surprise attack, some 400 planes from six Japanese carriers freely bombed the harbor and airfield. A total of 2,400 Americans were killed and 1,200 were wounded. The following day, Congress almost unanimously declared war against Japan.
The thought for today is.....
"We, and all others who believe in freedom as deeply as we do, would rather die on our feet that live on our knees."
(Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd US President, 1882-1945)
