Pearl Harbor Day

Sixty-seven years ago on another Sunday. My father had a friend who was there, and remembered, even more than the fear and anger, the simple astonishment he felt seeing the planes, with their “meatball” markings flying over this safe American anchorage. Americans certainly haven’t forgotten this anniversary, but it naturally gets less attention than it used to. I’m looking forward to hearing what Obama has to say in his address on the subject today.
