“A Day That Will Live in Infamy”

80 years ago today.

I was born in 1947 when the surprise bombing of Pearl Harbor was fresh in every American’s mind. In recent years the papers seem to no longer mention it. I was wondering today if the United States would ever have abandoned its isolationist approach to the wars in Asia and Europe if Japan hadn’t attacked Hawaii. It took a grievous interruption of a quiet Sunday morning to end any thought that we could “escape” the conflicts.
