In Memory of Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941

Today is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, which brought the U.S. (finally) into WWII. On this date, I take a moment to honor those who sacrificed so much, including my great uncle, who was killed during the Battle of the Bulge. It seems important now more than ever that we remember: Those who don’t heed history’s bitter lessons are doomed to repeat them.

In the words of Viktor Frankl, survivor of the Ghettos and Nazi concentration camp internments, love conquers all. Ignorance is a disease. Bigotry is intolerable. We are all brothers and sisters on this fragile, special place we call Earth.

My great uncle Raymond Plude. Gravesite in Luxembourg. May he rest in peace with our thanks for his sacrifice during the Battle of the Bulge.
