    Regrettably there was too much of this stuff before and has been since
    I know everything about nothing, nothing about everything and precious little about the bit in between.

    Hi Basementgeek,
    I thought your Post was apt and very evocative, considering the way things are today in this World with our young people out there fighting right now to preserve our freedoms and right to happiness; the Two Towers were attacked in what may be considered an even more dispicable way than Pearl Harbour was, any how words will never describe the event; and it is well for you to show something like you posted "Lest we forget" If this site does not want- Political,Religious,or Controversial subjects on a general talk section, tough! the Moderators can set the parameter for posters to follow, Cheers Jim.

    Friends:

    I wasn't trying to make a statement here, the only reason I deleted the post was the fact it was a "timed event". We don't don't wish others
    "Merry Christmas" after 25 Dec. Pearl Harbor Day has come and gone.
    Just wanted people to remember, nothing more, nothing less.


    I got up that morning, looked in our only local daily paper, saw nothing about it and I was a little upset. Us "Americans" seemed to have a pretty short memory, but a lot of this is due to our age. Us older ones remember things like this, the younger ones don't. We kind of been wrapped up with 9-11-01.

    Cheers
    Gary

    Gary,

    Unfortunately I missed your posting, but got the gist of what it said through your last post. I have been sitting here staring at your words, and feelings, thoughts running through my head, not just of Pearl Harbour, but about war in general. I know you did service, and being in a position of perhaps having to go to war at a moments notice, and the thoughts of those who have gone before, it must have felt like some kind of betrayal by the local media not to recognize that tragedy.

    I feel anytime is an appropriate time to remember. All be it one day is set aside for Pearl Harbour, one for D-Day, one for Remembrance Day .. the list goes on, but as long as just one person remembers, then all was not for naught.

    You've touched us with your feelings, even beyond the boarders of the US! You've done more than your local media could have ever done.

    Thanks,

    Glyn

    I prefer remembering the people not the event. Maybe a day all those who have died in World Wide tragedies
