I do think about what this day represents in how our country developed. There are other things I wonder, though. How many people see the flags at half-mast and wonder why? And how many people in this country do not know what Pearl Harbor is? That last may seem far-fetched, but a friend of mine when I was stationed in OK had someone ask him, “What’s Pearl Harbor?” What rock did they crawl out from? He really wanted to smack her, too, but decided against it for some reason.
Let us not forget those who died on this day 70 years ago and prompted us to enter that bloody war. For whatever the reasons behind us going in, I agree that it needed to be done.
