Across the world, where ever our nations standard flies, today it flew at half-mast. Did you notice? If you did, did you know why Old Glory dipped in mournful respect today?

I’m sure the readers here did notice, and I’m even more sure you knew why. But what of the rest of our countrymen? Do they remember the 2,043 lives lost that fateful Sunday morning 68 years ago? Do they remember the 1,178 wounded?

Do they remember the vengeful wrath that was awoken? Do they remember the way a nation united against the treacherous evil which wanted to subjugate the world?

The Arizona remembers.

She still weeps for the dead.

Are we as resolute today as our forefathers were then?
