Pearl Harbor Day
Some 70 years ago the Japanese Navy carried out an attack that took the lives of 2386 Americans. As the Japanese admiral who masterminded the attack said:
I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.
The Japanese had made a classic mistake, they underestimated their opponent. They also learned that hell hath no fury like free men and women when their freedom is threatened. Over the next 5 years the United States and her allies waged a war indistinguishable from the vengeful hand of an angry god. Please join me in remembering our fallen brothers, and the sacrifices they made to retain the freedoms we enjoy.
