December 7, 1941. A date which will live in infamy.
A date that has lived in infamy. At least up until recent years. With every new generation of Americans, the truth of the Imperial Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, seems to be slowly slipping into just being a lesson you hear in history class.
“The whole idea is to keep it fresh in our memory. Not for us, but for those who gave their lives that day. The hero’s are the ones that didn’t come back. We’re not the hero’s. Those that gave their life for the freedom of this country, and to see the way our own people have treated our country, is wicked. My message is: Remember Pearl Harbor, Keep America Alert.”
-Stuart N. Hedley (Seaman First Class; Aboard the battleship, USS West Virginia, during the attack on Pearl)
America hasn’t been so strongly unified as we were in the wake of the attack. It’s my understanding that there was a stronger unity between party lines on December 8th, 1941; than even on September 12th, 2001.
It’s unfortunate that it takes unforeseen attacks from foreign powers, both great and small, to bring this country out of poverty and divisiveness, and back into a unified whole. If we were to be attacked today, not even God could unify this nation. A nation founded on biblical principles, in hopes of being stated, united by God. Far have we come from 1776. And far have we come from 1941. But there is hope, lest we forget that infamous day. And though America is divided, we faithful few, and silent many, are unified in Christ.
