Yesterday was the 68th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.
The only things that I heard of this was 1. a joke on a Facebook status post, and 2. a short article from Aim.com (which I read at 12:30am on the 8th).
So am I the only one that didn't see anything from our country in response to this day of remembrance?
So...in honor of the 68th anniversary of Pearl Harbor:
This is the address that Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave to the Nation following the attack and his plea to congress to declare a state of war.
~Washington post - this is a small slide show of pictures of the remembrance that took place was the WWII memorial in Washington.
So Obama, what did you do for it? Send 30,000 troops over to Afghanistan? (though we did need more help over there) The only think I heard you do was "lower the flags to half staff" ...isn't that what you're supposed to do in the first place?
But, this isn't about Obama. This isn't about the media either...because that would just take too long.
No, this is about our generations not being able to appreciate values such as bravery, sacrifice, brotherhood, pride, love of country, honor, truth, etc.
Are these values lost forever? Will we ever get them back?
I certainly hope so. =(
