DECEMBER 7, 1941 DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU WERE THAT SUNDAY MORNING?


I know exactly what I was doing that morning. I was in our family car on a Sunday drive. We were listening to the car radio and enjoying the ride. Suddenly a voice came on the radio saying that Pearl Harbor had been attacked by Japanese forces. I remember wondering what Pearl Harbor was all about and where was it. I was nine years old at that time. I must have been impressed by the message heard on the  radio because I have never forgotten that scene. The anniversary of the  act of war that caused the USA to become a participant in WWII is tomorrow. I know this because I was checking my memory of the date of another, unrelated, event and was somewhat surprised by the reminder note imprinted on the calendar. I otherwise would have not known of the significance of the day as it unfolded for me. Shame on me! We forget at our peril.
