Today is Pearl Harbor Day. For my parents’ and grandparents’ generations, this was their “9/11.” I’m still saddened when I think of the unprovoked, cowardly attacks on both December 7 and September 11. But I am grateful that we have only had two such attacks within our borders.
Today is a great day to remember, to mourn, and to thank our military personnel who responded so courageously in the aftermath. These, I believe, are appropriate responses.
But every day is our day to respond appropriately.
Let’s show our gratitude for the safety we have in this country every day.
Let’s find ways to live out our thankfulness every day.
Let’s show our thanks to our servicemen and women and our law enforcement officers every day.
Remember … and then respond appropriately every day. God bless America!
