Hope everyone enjoys this most U.S. of holidays as we celebrate those that gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedoms. Although these brave men and women probably never thought of the ramifications of their sacrifice, we as a nation should never forget what they have done for us. Brave men and women continue this sacrifice even to this day to ensure that we will all have the protections that the U.S. Constitution affords us as U.S. Citizens.
Please take this time to pause and remember the bombing of Pearl Harbor seventy-two years ago and forced the entrance of the United States into World War II. No longer do we seem as a nation to want to honor the memory of the men and women that died during the Japanese attack that devastated the United States and plunged us into that war. As a descendant of of Filipino mother, World War II has a special significance for me. Please help me honor the memories of all of those brave men and women that fought in World War II to secure the freedoms that we enjoy today. Thank you.
