Pearl Harbor Day is one of those landmark days of the year which cause me to reflect on the entire WWII era. I am reminded of the tremendous sacrifices the “greatest generation” made to keep the world “safe”. I have read “Saints at War” and really enjoyed the stories of the veterans. In addition, I find Roosevelt’s remarks in front of congress both inspiring and chilling. Remembering the sacrifices of this generation gives me much more compassion and respect when I interact with the elderly today. So thanks again to the “Greatest Generation”

What are those landmark days for you? Interestingly, for me I was only alive for two of my five dates…

1. September 11th, 2001
