Day of Infamy

Today is December 7, and 77 years ago an American Navy based was bombed and over 2,000 men lost their lives. Our navy was severely damaged. President Roosevelt declared it a date which will live in infamy.

It was also a day many boys became a man.

Many states lost their home navy ship. Parts and pieces of these sunken ships were used to build the USS Enterprise. I know there are supposedly several ships to wears the name but I am talking about the on that was built after Pearl Harbor and at the battle of Coral Sea.

No, not Captain Kirk’s Enterprise. The WWII battle ship which the Starship Enterprise was named for. At the time it was the largest of it kind.

I know we don’t give this date much thought in the age of technology. We feel we are invincible, hipper, chicer. More tolerance. Wiser than those in 1941.

But are we?

But we owe our entire way of life to these people. Had they lost most of us wouldn’t be here.  That’s why I take out every year to tell them “Thank you.”

The link leads to the speech itself.

As you can see from Roosevelts speech Japan was very busy the night of December 6, 1941

She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
