December 7, 2008

Today is the 67th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

I have been there was no less impacting the second than the first. My heart and soul ached as I stood, literally stood atop the watery graves of 2,000 men.

It is a beautiful memorial to those who lost their lives that day. It is a sacred place for the family's of those lost and the survivors who still carry the images of "the day that shall live in infamy."

I bow my head today. I hold my mind still. I say a private thank you to those gone and I assure you, you are not forgotten. And I cry at the top of my voice, with all the breath I have, " Thank you, Thank you to all of you who fight for my freedom every day...I think about where you are and what you do and I hope somehow you hear me."
