Who knows if or how the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor is taught in schools these days. It was, to borrow a phrase from Joe Biden, a BFD... an event that changed the world. Can you imagine what might have happened had our current administration been in charge on that day in December? It is likely that the Japanese would have seized control of the Golden Gate Bridge before any retaliatory action would have been considered. Instead of at war, we would have found ourselves smack dab in the middle of a man caused disaster! It would have been down hill from there.
Fortunately that wasn't the case. In those days our nation had a collective spine, and a leader, who though FAR from perfect, at least wasn't ashamed of America. Thank God (and you should) for those who lead us through those perilous days and for those brave souls who fought and died to save the world.
