65th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

Merely 2 days before Pearl Harbor Day our bay is loaded with pelicans dive-bombing the minnows. Many more are on large, gliding circles as they spy-plane for the Kamikazes. It gives me time to reflect as I watch them splash down.

I have two old friends, one of Swedish decent, the other of Japanese decent. Both are from many, many generations of Americans. These girls never fail to call each other on Pearl Harbor Day and blow air-kisses to each other.

Have you ever been to the Pearl Harbor Memorial? It's pretty amazing and I hope you have a chance to see it someday. It's built right on top of the sunk USS Arizona. It's eerie and yet lovely. When you book that lavish trip to Hawaii be sure to add in a half day for a visit to this memorial.
