Word by Word

Creating myself one word at a time.

Pearl Harbor

I began reflecting on the Pearl Harbor bombing. The words of FDR are unforgettable when remembering the damage done at Pearl Harbor and the lives lost.

When I was in junior high, I had the opportunity to visit Pearl Harbor. It was the 50th anniversary, which means I explored the monuments with survivors of Pearl Harbor. Men and women who were on the bases and ships when the bombs began to fall. Men and women who lost family and friends that day. There was still oil leaking from the USS Arizona.

God bless all of those still living and those who have passed on.
