75 years ago today our nation suffered one of the most terrible attacks in history. President Roosevelt described it as "a date which will live in infamy," and the aftermath of that day spurred our country on to perhaps one of the biggest come backs in history. An entire generation of Americans answered the call of our nation, and as a result changed the course of history itself. Our country has grown a lot since that day, and we still have a way to go. God has undoubtedly blessed this nation in the days since, but it is important that we look back with gratitude to those Americans who have paid the ultimate price in order to preserve the rights that we hold so dear.
Today we will take a moment to reflect on the men of the Arizona, the Utah, and the Oklahoma; the men who raised the flag on Iwo Jima; the men who stormed the beaches of Normandy; all of the men, women, and children of that Greatest Generation, American and ally alike, who sacrificed so much so that we can continue on with many of the comforts that we take for granted today. If you see a veteran today, please consider telling him or her thank you, and let's try to show this generation our gratitude while we still can. We wish you the best today, and God Bless.
