The nation remembers Pearl Harbor

See also

When news first leaked that Hawaii's Pearl Harbor had been bombed, leading the United States to enter World War II, then-President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called December 7th "a day that will live in infamy."

Now, 70 years later, that famous quote still remains very true, as the nation once again recalled the events of that tragic day.

Today, December 7th also remains a day devoted to reflection, as we remember the legacy of the brave men and women who lost their lives during the attack.

Much like September 11th, December 7th should always remain a day of reflection. It is a day when our freedom itself, which is the foundation that our country was founded upon, was threatened. However, thanks to the efforts of many heroic men and women, our country still remains strong today.

Although December 7, 1941 may now seems like ancient history, it is important to remember what the day is really all about: the people who fought and gave their lives in the name of freedom, and to look back at the heroism that has contributed to the freedoms we enjoy today.

How will you remember the events of December 7, 1941?
