“A Day of Infamy”

Sunday, December 7, 1941 was labeled “A Day of Infamy” by President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

He spoke of the carnage at Pearl Harbor — the loss of lives and the destruction of our navy. It took several days for pictures to reach the United States.

Wednesday, January 6, 2021 was another “Day of Infamy,” but the pictures were instantly in view. The entire world was treated as President Donald Trump ranted and raved for over an hour on Fox News that his election had been stolen from him. (A lie)

We had an “up close and friendly” view of his “Base” — that was a shocker! The crowd had been led to a fever pitch and then their hero instructed them to “March to the Capitol.”

I was 12 years old on “Pearl Harbor Day.” We had just come home from church and my mother had started frying our chicken for lunch when my daddy turned the radio on.

Even at being just 12 years old, I sensed the urgency and threat to our country.

Information since the “War on our Capitol” began reveals that several highly popular “Social Media” sites have (for several weeks) been “cussing and discussing” this assault on our Capitol.

It will take decades of hard work, genuine diplomacy and trust on a global scale for this country to once again, be a “leader.”
