December 7, 1941

A picture of the beginning of the attack on Pearl Harbor as seen from a Japanese bomber.
The explosion is going off near the U.S.S. Oklahoma.
Somewhere down there, and I think it's on the Oklahoma, is my neighbor's son.
Its an odd feeling to sit at a computer 68 years later, and find a picture of the precise moment when the life of someone you met and knew suddenly changed forever.

No comments:

Its Spring!

I found these in a garden center, nestled in the Astilbe.
