Dec. 7, 2016, 07:55, is the 75th anniversary of Imperial Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor, Oahu. There will be ceremonies across the state, centralized in Honolulu. The local newspapers and radio stations like Hawaii Public Radio have well-done articles like this one: Pearl Harbor 75 Years Later: Remembering the Morning “Everything Changed.”
We’d also like to take a moment to remember those who were there. We thank you for your courage, service, endurance, and legacy.

The US Navy’s blog has a nice article up today on how Pearl Harbor Survivors Changed the World. The article’s focus is on thanks and, “Honoring the Past, Inspiring the Future,” which we think is an encouraging message of respect and hope.
