I am a 24 yr old young woman of Non-Denominational faith. I am a homeschool graduate,who is still living at home with her Mother & Father & two younger brothers. I am involved with my church in many areas of ministry, from singing to American Sign Language, to drama & dance, to nursery work. I am an avid reader, lover of anything involving history, passionate sewer & wearer of historical clothing,continuous watcher of historical costume movies & black & whites, Future Homemaker & hopefully, Lord willing, Mother, & lover of my Lord & Savior, Jesus.
If my Grandma, Virginia, were still alive, today she & my Grandpa would be celebrating their 70th anniversary. They were married only 4 days after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. I am certain that their marriage was happy yet somewhat sad occasion with such a national tragedy. They had loving marriage, filled with seven children, two of which unfortunately died before the age of two. My Grandma went on to be with Lord nearly 20 years ago, from kidney failure. We all miss her dearly, my Grandpa especially. We will be spending the anniversary with him so that the loneliness is not so difficult to bear. I can only say, please cherish your loved ones while they are here & never lose a chance to tell them how much you care.
It was 70 years ago on this very day in December that the infamous attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii was perpetrated, mercilessly taking the lives of 2,390 Americans. The onslaught was the final straw that broke the camel's back & made it a certainty of our involvement in World War II. My own grandfather may have been there, if it had not been for a car accident that prevented his entering the service. We must always remember those who sacrifice their lives for our freedom.
