TODAY IS DEC 7, 2006 ; REMEMBER 1941?

 
 
 
DOES ANYONE OUT THERE REMEMBER DECEMBER 7TH, 1941?
 
THIS WAS THE DAY THE WORLD CHANGED FOR EVERYONE, FOREVER.
THE BEGINNING OF WWII.  BOMBING OF PEARL HARBOR.  BY THE
JAPANESE…
 
MY FATHER WAS DRAFTED RIGHT AFTER THIS CATACLYSMIC EVENT.
 
HE SPENT THE NEXT FOUR AND A HALF YEARS FIGHTING IN THE
TRENCHES OF MANY DIFFERENT COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD,
TO SAVE OUR WAY OF LIFE.
 
EVERY YEAR ON THIS DAY, I REMEMBER.  THOUGH I WAS NOT YET
EVEN THOUGHT OF AT THE TIME, I FEEL AS THOUGH I WAS THERE.
BECAUSE EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS
TO MY DAD WAS REFLECTED IN OUR LIVES FOREVER….
 
I WILL NEVER FORGET THIS DAY, OR ALL OF THE "SOLIDERS" THAT
GAVE THEIR LIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES "WAY OF LIFE" THAT WAS
CHANGED FOREVER.
 
TODAY IS A DAY FOR ALL OF US TO REFLECT.  DO WE WANT THIS TO
HAPPEN AGAIN?  I HOPE AND PRAY NOT.
 
I LOST MY DAD, ON JUNE 20, 2001.  HIS FEET HAD BEEN ALL OVER THE
WORLD, FRANCE, MANILA, PHILLIPINE ISL., GERMANY AND I DON’T KNOW WHERE ALL ELSE,  AND HE  SAW THINGS HE WOULD NOT EVEN TALK ABOUT.
 
WAR IS A HORRIBLE AND INHUMANE THING, IN ANY COUNTRY.
NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO LIVE IN A WORLD FILLED WITH HATE
AND BIGOTRY.
 
PLEASE, EVERYONE PRAY TODAY FOR PEACE IN THE WORLD, FOR ALL
PEOPLE.
 
REMEMBER DARFUR…….AND ALL OTHER COUNTRIES AT WAR, IN YOUR
PRAYERS.
 
GOD BLESS,
SHEREE
