Sunday, Bloody Sunday

8 Dec

Shhhhhhh….. it’s a secret. 
I remember from my younger school days that December 7 is designated as “Pearl Harbor Day.”  It’s a good thing I remembered on my own, because I didn’t see much about it in the news yesterday, did you?

This morning I ran across this excellent commentary about that fateful Sunday morning 68 years ago with a comparison to our 9/11 of 2001. 

Almost sixty years post that “day of infamy”, another sunny morn would be rocked by explosions, become shrouded in billows of smoke, and see its sun set on thousands of dead innocents.  War had come to America again on the morning of September 11, 2001.

It’s good–go read it.

And here are a couple of Pearl Harbor videos. (Sorry for the creepy voice-over in this first video)
