Pearl Harbor Day...

Yesterday was Pearl Harbor Day.  It had been on my mind since the beginning of the month, but then yesterday, when it was important, it slipped my mind.  I am probably the only one here on Praize who actually remembers the day.  It was tragic... even to my very young mind.  All I remember is that "the Japs came and bombed the island".  I knew that people were killed.  My people.  It took a lot of years for me to "accept Japs".  One year  a Japanese husband and wife moved in across the street.  Immediately they were "bad" in my eyes.  After all, THEY bombed Pearl Harbor!  Eventually we became friends and I was able to forgive HER for the terrible thing HER contry had done. I did not have a close relationship with her husband, but I believe I forgave him because he was married to her!  

But the day DOES come up every year; and I HAVE to think about it.  And I have to pray because I know in my heart of hearts that the Japanese people that are alive today had no part in that slaughter.  And if I met those people today, I would probably like them as well.
