Marilyn,

Thank you for composing a very strong memorial poem
and tribute to all those who fought, sacrificed and gave
their lives for us. This is a very impacting poem and
presentation and an apt reminder for us all.

Your extensive author notes are also appreciated.

    Hi Linda. Thank you for your wonderful review. Certain historical events cannot pass without acknowledging their significance each year, don't you think? I hope schools are still teaching kids about them. The photo and the author's notes are from bing. Marilyn

You've created a great tribute/reminder with this fine poem. I've never heard about the first anniversary of Pearl Harbor, before.
This work boldly states we should never forget what happened that day.
What a wonderful photo!

Amen, it should always be remembered. I was appalled that Obama apologized on our behalf, making a mockery of these men, who only strove to end a war they didn't start. Great dedication to these souls, may they rest in peace, blessings...

    Thank you for reading this one, Judy, and for your fine review. Historical events like this should be remembered. It makes me wonder if history is even taught in schools anymore or if anyone really gives a darn. I hope so. Marilyn

This is wonderful, Marilyn, and even though I wasn't yet born, nor am I American, that day was certainly talked about as I grew up, and will remain with me all my days, I think...there was a movie made about it fairly recently too (though I know there were others). It was fabulous. I wish I could recall the name of it!

    Hi Dawn. Thank you for your fine review of my poem to honor the 2400+ who died that day when Japan attacked us and plunged America into WWII. I was born the following month. Marilyn

Amen...an excellent poem that pays tribute to the tragedies of Pearl Habor - we shall always remember. I was in Hawaii in June and took a tour on one of the battleships. A memorable and eye opening trip. This is a very touching read. Thank you for sharing. ~DD

Thank you for honoring the Pearl Harbor tragedy and quoting Roosevelt in your rhymed quatrains. The photograph and notes add further reminders about the sacrifice made by thousands. More sighs- Joan

It may have been years ago, but there are still those alive that remember it. So many gave their lives to protect the country and those in it that they love. Thank you for reminding us that it is important to honor those who sacrificed.

A well-written poem. Your words flowed well line to line combining and forming the message of the poem for the reader. A well written memorial poem to the men who died.
