Bit of Happy #61: Plus Eight

7 Dec

“…A date which will live in infamy…”
-President Franklin D. Roosevelt
December 7, 1941

Sixty-nine years ago today, devastation shook the United States – the world. It was a shock. A terror…

Sixty-nine years ago today, innocent lives were lost, and it was only the beginning. I wanted to dedicate this entry and take a moment to recognize all of those who died during the Pearl Harbor attacks on December 7, 1941.

Sixty-nine years ago today is a date that will live in infamy. A date that will never be forgotten. So let’s take a moment to remember… and never forget. To bless those who lost their lives. And bless all of the families who were left behind. Let’s hope for strength, courage and peace upon those who grieve in this tragedy, even today.

In life, it’s important to keep the memories alive. I like to believe that you can live way beyond the day you die through others’ memories. By never forgetting the happiness and love, you will not only bring life to that person’s spirit, but you will also find strength in times of weakness.

Life isn’t always easy, and this day was certainly one of those not-so-easy days. The only thing you can do is carry on. Live your life without forgetting those you love. Love others without holding back. And learn without the fear of making a mistake. We only get one chance at this thing called life, and all we can do is live, love, learn and make the best of what we’re given.
