12/7/41

Take a moment and remember the men who were lost sixty-four years ago today in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Thus began America’s direct involvement in World War II. Some say that was the last “good” war. Well, speaking as a Quaker, there are no good wars, but I understand the meaning of the term; the enemy was clearly evil and it was clear what was at stake. It only goes to prove that war is not a thing to be taken lightly and that wars do not end wars; a lesson we never seem to learn.

I also remember those who served in that war and are still with us.
