headlines-Pearl-Harbor

As I was beginning to write this article I was looking many newspaper headlines from the days following the attack.  The information was different from paper to paper.  Unlike today as we huddle around our TV’s waiting to see images and get minute to minute updates on a situation, they had to solely rely on the information over the radio, letting their imaginations run wild with the images.  I think about how the families with loved ones stationed there must have felt after hearing the news.

Listen to this real radio broadcast from December 7, 1941:

“December, 7 1941, A Date which will live in Infamy… No matter how long it may take us to overcome this premeditated invasion, the american people, in their righteous might, will win through to absolute victory.”      -President Franklin D. Roosevelt

Take time today to remember all of the lives lost on this devastating day in American History.
