Pearl Harbor, Today is a sobering day of remembrance. The following are links to 2016 when our oldest daughter was so blessed to volunteer with our WWII Greatest Generation vets AT Pearl Harbor. These beautiful men were THERE at Pearl Harbor. I'll keep it short, but I cannot let this day go by without honoring our vets and keep a dialogue of that sobering day. We have talked to these most beautiful people at the grocery store and other places, we honor them when we see them.
One of the vets, Uncle Bob (in the links below) who Janie got to know pretty well, we would call him on his birthday, he said he could see the kamikaze's face swooping down at him as he manned his gun on deck.
The below links will have other links and one is talking to a vet at the grocery store, he broke down in tears that day. It makes me cry to this day to think of that day talking with him and his wife.
Our daughter got to know these men who are on this video:
There are quite a few movies too, 'The Fighting Sullivans' is one of them. An entire family of brothers there fighting and every one of those young men were lost. A full exhibit of the Fighting Sullivans and the telegraph of their mother, pictures a reenactment of her calling the President is at The Pacific War museum in Fredericksburg, Texas. I highly recommend that museum.
Other movies are Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo, Destination Tokyo and Best Years of Our Lives.
I'm worn out today after taking my mom to Dollar Tree yesterday, oh how happy it made her and I totally get that. She's almost 94 now...Everyday is a journal page, what will we compose?
Signing off, remembering Pearl Harbor and those mighty and brave men who fought for us. God bless them. May we lift our great country up in prayer.
God be with us all, ~Amelia
