Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

We often don't stop to think about the reality of war.

We know it occurs, we know it's heinous, but it's so far removed that I think, as a society, we become desensitized to its horror. In commemoration then of its 71st anniversary, I thought it would be appropriate to post the following video, taken from the epic film Pearl Harbor. Just as a warning, it is pretty graphic (not in terms of blood, but just the way men are gunned down). But I think all of us need a wake up call every now and again, if only to realize what has been sacrificed and how precious is the freedom we hold dear.
