I Can't Believe I Forgot

When trying to figure out what to post for the 7th I completely forgot something that I never forget. Today is December 7 - the 65th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Shows how my mind is working lately. So take a moment today to remember those who died in the Japanese attack on the Hawaiian Islands, an event that brought the United States into World War II. I vowed to never forget, and I did. It won't happen again.

Unfortunately it's far too easy to forget. Like you, I'm going to do my best to remember those who passed away during the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

We had the same blog thought.
Never forget.

There's a great website called the Pearl Harbor Survivors Project - I posted info about it on my blog today.

My grandparents were attacked in Hong Kong on the same day. They spent three years and seven months in a civilian internment camp. Thanks for reminding me of the date! (Because of the international date line it was 8th December there).

Good to remember these dates.

Talked about it today in class, played FDR's speech and all. It won't do to forget.

Bailey, you didn't forget. Even if you had missed this day, that wouldn't mean that you forgot.

The event is something that should not be forgotten but I'm sure you are sometimes reminded of it on other occasions that have nothing to do with this date. Now why do I always remember the date as Dec. 6? Does it have something to do with the dateline?
