I'm not holding a grudge, and have recently fallen in love with Japan and her people, but history, remembrance, and memorials are important, so it is sad to note that FDR's date which will live in infamy is mostly ignored.

Yet Ed Hayes came through, as did BC and Mallard.

I half remembered. That is, when I saw that today was December 7, I thought, "Hmm, that is a notable date. Some kind of memorial day, but I can't remember which one."

Do you remember when Janet played taps on the violin at the Indian Princess Christmas tree sale on December 7, 1991 (50th anniversary)?

I remember playing taps vividly, and I think I knew at the time why I played, but to further show my ignorance, I had no idea December 7th was special until I read Mallard. Why did nothing historical stick in my head? Well, that's nothing that can't be changed. Thanks for the post!

December 7, 1941
Excerpt: We will never forget. A day that will live in infamy. Forever is a long time.  How long will it be, I wonder, before the most recent unprovoked, surprise attack on American soil is as distant a memory as the one before? I usually judge society'...
