It is difficult for me to think that I was only 8 yrs. old on the day the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor. It seems like yesterday as I vividly recall exactly what I was doing at the time. We'd just finished Sunday dinner and I was outside playing when my dad came out and told me to get into the house right away. Of course, I wasn't going quietly and asked him why. He told me that we were at war. Now, this is the East Coast and I was aware of the war in Europe, so I looked around me and asked him where, as all was quiet on the home front. When he told me about what had happened, I, naturally, had never heard of Pearl Harbor. I couldn't understand why we would be at war since I thought Hawaii was a foreign country. Well, daddy-o proceeded to open our atlas and gave me a geography lesson I'd never forget. And, then Hitler declared war on us and the rest is history. What a sad history it is too. Such evil people, even among our allies.
