A Resolution

Got an email with links to two sites featuring photos from Hawaii regarding the recent dedication of the U.S.S. Oklahoma and the 65th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack.

We are not so far removed from December 7th, 1941 as one might imagine.

Truly, the "Greatest Generation" must be those who fought and endured the Second World War. They gave everything and asked little in return. It is they to whom we owe so very, very much. They saw and lived through unspeakable horrors and those who returned did so only with a desire to attempt a normal life and asked only for the opportunity to put those horrors behind them and move forward. Age has taken so many of them and few now remain.

Honor them and their sacrifices, always, and resolve this New Year to remember all those, both then and now, who are willing to place duty, honor and courage above self.
