Those who were there will never, ever forget the day. Nor should those of us who were not present. December 7, 2012, marks 71 years since the United States of America was caught unaware and unprepared at Pearl Harbor. The horrendous event moved the nation from a defensive posture to an offense vengeance, culminating in the use of nuclear bombs against Japan.
Said Albert Einstein,“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” Let’s heed the lessons of the past and learn better ways of international diplomacy than by bombs, missiles and heavy artillery. Peace begins within. May every nation on Earth find peace, health and prosperity. May every nation on Earth find compassion.
