Remembering December 7th

Sixty-four years ago today our country was attacked without provocation. 2,403 sailors died that day. Japan rained bombs down on Pearl Harbor and our sailors and their ships moored there. The country was devastated as we found ourselves fully involved in World War II. We came together as a country and backed our President and our soldiers and sailors in order to regain our peace and freedom.

Almost 60 years later, our country was hit without provocation again. This time it was not a military facility, but buildings where civilians were simply going to work. We must not forget December 7th or September 11th, ever. The above poster has a saying that we must take to heart. We should strive to do what is necessary to gain victory not only for the Iraqis, but for ourselves as well.

"...we here resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain..."
