I’ve often wondered at the intensity of thought of a 16 year old girl, (that was me), considering the awful event of PEARL HARBOR. This was written in 1951. The event had happened only ten years earlier. Although it seems to us in 2020 as only a point in history, it was very real to a teen-ager in those days.
The war had been over for 6 years at that time. It remained fresh in the minds of our people.
The men and women who served in the war, some of whom are still with us today, can never erase the images of horrors they witnessed during their time of service to our country.
December 7th is a date to remember.
If we cannot remember what happened on that date, investigate the history books.
Loved to write since high school..as the years pass memories and relationships are primary. (There is also room for an opinion or two.) Feeling good at the age of eighty-five, enjoying life and a hobby of photography. Lived on a small farm for sixty-one years. welcomed three sons, two grandkids, and 3 greats. Owned and operated an Ace Hardware and Hallmark Shop, managing also to raise sheep for ten years. Shared sixty-two years of marriage before his passing in 2017. One son has also passed on to the next life, Memories really are "Made From This". Welcome to my world!
