70 years ago, just before 8:00 AM the Japanese attacked the naval base at Pearl Harbor
in Hawaii killing 2,000 people and wounding 1,000 more in an act that galvanized our nation into war.
Please remember that this nation was built on the sacrifice of others.
Please remember that the safety of this nation has been purchased by the sacrifice of people.
Please remember that we must always be vigilant and prepared as there are nations and peoples that desire our destruction as a nation.
Please remember that as trite as the phrase may seem, “Freedom isn’t free” is a truism. It is purchased at great cost.
And most of all, please remember that our only ultimate hope is God.
