Pearl Harbor Anniversary

NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — December 7, 1941, according to President Franklin D. Roosevelt is “a date which will live in infamy.” With today’s anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, we are all reminded that the United States is vulnerable to attacks by foreign entities. On this anniversary, I am also reminded of the 2001 9/11 attacks on America which saw nearly a similar number of lives lost. The United States entered into war after both occasions. Let us not forget lessons learned concerning both attacks; and let us remember the many lives lost in those attacks.

In other news, many people around the world are remembering their personal feelings about Nelson Mandela.
