Remember Pearl Harbor!

Today is December 7th, a day that is anything but normal. Today I write this post to remind us to take a moment in silence in remembrance of the tragedy that occurred on this day 76 years ago. On that day the United States of America experienced it’s first assault ever from a foreign nation on their lands. This was a devasting attack that brought the country into the World War II. On this day 2, 335 people lost their lives, 68 of which were civilians. 1,135 were wounded among which 35 were civilians. Before we could enter the war we lost 6 ships, 4 of which were battleships and 188 aircrafts were destroyed. Please take a moment to pay respect to those that loss their lives that day. Remember Pearl Harbor!
