66 years ago:

This documentary states approximately 1,000 WWII veterans die each day.

The WWII Memorial in our nation’s capital was dedicated on May 29, 2004.

The Pearl Harbor Memorial was dedicated on Memorial Day 1962.
September 11th has already started to pass by unnoticed by some a mere 6 years after the tragedy. December 7th has been significant for 66 years. We should always remember, so we never forget. We are the most powerful nation in the world, but that makes us ridiculously vulnerable as well.

Joe and Wendi were just telling us that they had a exchange student from Japan years ago that was NOT taught about Pearl Harbor in school.... We also need to remember because others may need to know the truth...
Sad that students may have text books that indicated 911 was from Iraq...again remember to prevent ignorance- that is my charge!

Today in school, the dean did not say "under God" in the pledge. The kids all did the predictable: "Oooooh...." I wonder what happened.
