Pearl Harbor dead remembered on 71st anniversary

    There's been a lot of world changing events in the interim but for those coming of age on this day 71 years ago, the attack on Pearl Harbor was a life shaping day.
     The event is still acknowledged in Hawaii, but for most, its just a December day as history has a way of putting all events in perspective.
      It's still a day that lives in infamy, but there are other such days too, 9/11 being high on that list.

Pearl Harbor lived in peoples minds a lot longer because they never had a bunch of left wing nuts trying to make us forget ASAP.

On September 11, 2001 our country was attacked for the first time! The Pearl Harbor attack was on Hawaii which was not even a state at that time. While it was a 'protectorate' 9/11 was different. More than 3,000 innocent people with very few military from 75 countries died in the 9/11 attacks. There were 4 targets! So 9/11 was 3 times worse than Pearl Harbor and then we went all the way to Japan and dropped 2 nuclear weapons. While Japan could never actually invade the U.S. I supported going after them. Then when President Bush went after the terrorists who attacked us he was criticized!

Japan had subs all over our coast for months till we got our act together. They had carriers that would have found our shores easy, we just got lucky st Midway and kicked their ass.

The 9/11 was a terrible tragedy, A classmate of mine died, what followed is a overcommercialized grab of money by the various groups capitalizing on the day. It was payback for us bombing everyone else and a Wakeup call.
