When I was a kid this was a big day.
Now most people ask what is Pearl Harbor anyway?
What a difference 70 years makes.

I think most will have heard of it, even today on the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. But it's like any war that was fought long ago, it doesn't matter to the new generations. I even asked some of my eldest son's friends about the Gulf War, it was only 20 years ago, but most haven't a clue. It doesn't bother me, that was my time, this is theirs.
