As we mark the 70th anniversary of the vicious and unprovoked attack by Japan against the United States at Pearl Harbor, we must never forget the over 2,000 soldiers and civilians who were killed that day.

They did not die in vain. Four years later, in August of 1945, Japan finally capitulated and surrendered following the dropping of two atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.One Japanese officer commented after the attack on Pearl Harbor, “I fear that we have awakened a sleeping giant.”

He was so very right. The Japanese got just what they deserved — what goes around, comes around. Let us remember all of those who lost their lives on that awful day and pray for them and their families, as well as those remaining survivors of the attack that will live on in infamy, forever.
