Seventy Three years and one day…. and most is forgotten by design…..


I waited till today, the day after the anniversary of the savage attack on Pearl Harbor because I wanted to see just how many places, including the news media who would remember this event that helped shape the world for generations……and sadly, there wasn’t much, bringing me back to my oft mentioned history lesson of, if you don’t remember your past, you are doomed to repeat it. So the second question is, why do the media and the left think we need to forget it? So in memory of the thousands who lost their lives that day in just a few hours, both military and civilian…….here is a pictorial of that day, with captions included to tell what they are.

Many don’t realize that the civilian population miles away from the harbor were targeted too, as seen in this photo of a car taken before they were taken out of it.

My question is, how can we forget such a dirty deed done by a people who were in Washington days before in Peace Talks to prevent war between the two countries. Americans were killed this day in a sneak attack on our country by the Japanese. Just the same as the attack on America on 9/11/2001. The media, and the left and sadly a bunch from the right work diligently to make us forget, by not allowing photos of these events or news reports of it. Let’s not forget. I for one don’t want to have America repeat either one of these things…..but keep up the same path we are on and mark my words folks,….it is coming.
Remember Pearl Harbor and remember 9/11. Like it or not, they are a part of our history that has to be taught to our children so they won’t be hit like this again, and not be ready for it. Reagan had it right. Strength makes peace. Weakness brings the enemy.

God Bless America
God Bless our Troops
God Bless us all.
