Remember Pearl?
2008-12-07 22:01:00
It was 67 years ago, today. I wonder at how much we as a people have forgotten. The battleship in this picture, at the time of the attack, had something on the order of a million gallons of heavy fuel oil. It ended up on the bottom of the harbor… Along with about half her crew. There is a dribble of oil that comes up from the wreckage that amounts to about a quart of oil per day. It’s been doing that for all of these 67 years. Sad, that we were unable to hold the memory as long as the oil in that tank held out. You see, there were those in that day who figured that foreign powers such as Japan and Germany couldn’t threaten us. I look at the current pacifist movement in the country today, and I wonder.
