Today is a day which lives in infamy 🕯️
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day
The Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service attacked the neutral United States at Naval Station Pearl Harbor near Honolulu, Hawaii on December 7, 1941. The attack sank four U.S. Navy battleships and damaged four others. It also damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, and one minelayer. Aircraft losses were 188 destroyed and 159 damaged.
In honor and remembrance of the 2,403 American service members and civilians who were killed and the 1,178 injured during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor; And the millions who died and were injured in World War II during the same era (mostly civilians).
We Americans live a life of freedom in a land of opportunity. We have so much to be appreciative and grateful for. The chaos we are witnessing is by-far pale in comparison to the environments people in other countries live and are raised in their entire life.
December 7th is the 341st day of the year. Lets appreciate our privileged life and make the remaining 24 days of 2022 count, not only for ourselves, but for other people.
