Pearl Harbor

by BeasPeas

'More Opinions, Politics & Comments' ~ #35-401-B

It was December 7, 1941,
on that Sunday morn in Pearl Harbor,
when hundreds of Japanese planes bombed after dawn,
a day may we always remember.

There will always be those who want total control,
to destroy what we cannot undo.
We then joined with our allies for liberty's cause,
America entered WWII.

Let history caution us to never forget,
to circumvent a costly error.
Bravely we took a stand then, must do so again,
not give in to ISIS terror.

Goodness will lose if it's inertia we choose,
and tears will fall from Heaven's crying.
We must unite together for salvation's sake,
to save humanity from dying.

Remembering Pearl Harbor, Oahu, Hawaii

When Pearl Harbor was bombed, it would be two months before I was born. Hitler was terrorizing Europe and Hirohito in the Pacific. Shortly after Pearl Harbor the U.S. entered WWII. Today we remember Pearl Harbor, "a date that will live in infamy," as spoken by President Franklin Roosevelt. The free world is facing a new threat now--radical Islamic terrorism.
