A date which will live in infamy: Today is the 65th anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. That's what started World War II. My grandfather, who is 82, served in the Pacific Theater in the Corps of Engineers -- zero wave. Our freedom today is owed to their sacrifices; December 7 will be forever dedicated in their memory. Tom Brokaw said it best... from the AP:

''America in an instant became the land of the indivisible,'' said former NBC Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw, the author of ''The Greatest Generation,'' who spoke at the shoreside ceremonies. ''There are so many lessons from that time for our time, none greater than the idea of one nation greater than the sum of its parts.''
