A Date Which Will Live in Infamy

Early on a beautiful Sunday morning 70 years ago, the world changed.

At 7:55 a.m. December 7, 1941 the attack begins.

Pearl Harbor Attack
Pearl Harbor Attack

The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor to remove what it saw as a threat to the empire’s southern expansion. The Pearl Harbor attack hurt us badly, but it also hardened our resolve and brought us fully into WWII.

Snopes has some photos that were purported to be found in an old Brownie camera years after the attack. The story was untrue, but the photos are archival and genuine.

The U.S. Navy has a Pearl Harbor site with more photos.

Chris at A Large Regular has linked to this National Geographic Pearl Harbor site in the past. It has a multimedia timeline, survivor stories, kid’s section, and more.

Christmas Song of the Day – 7th December

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

It came upon a midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harp of gold

Peace on earth, good will to men
From heaven’s all gracious King
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world

Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing
And ever o’er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing

For lo! The days are hastening on
By prophet barbs foretold
When with the ever circling years
Comes round the age of gold

When peace shall overall the earth
Its ancient splendors fling
And the whole world send back the song
Which now the angels sing.
