Pearl Harbor and 26,000 Days of War

Today is the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. Everyone already knows about the "day that will live in infamy," and how it kicked off America's full involvement in World War II...

...but I'd like you to think about this, as well: we have been at war somewhere in the world - secretly or openly, in large ways and small - every day since, for the last 71 years.

26,000 days of war. Not one or two or five or ten wars. One long war being waged to this day.

2. Almost my entire life - born 3 months before that. That is one sad commentary on our nation.
