[4ARM]: Loyalty opportunity with FRR
Never Forget: Pearl Harbor
"...we highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain..."

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said during a press conference Monday it was natural for WWII veterans to be “embittered” about Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s visit to Pearl Harbor, but they should "get over it" for the sake of America. This comes as a slap in the face. Understandably so for the vets in attendance but outrageous that we should "get over" the atrocities of the past. Fools rush to forget so that they may repeat the same mistakes. This attitude of firmly placing your head in the sand only dooms history to repeat itself. One doesn't simply shake-off something like Pearl Harbor. I put myself in their shoes and imagine tomorrow's generation saying I should "get over" 9/11. That's something we as a society, a culture, and a country, cannot and should not forget.

Without any reason to fight for decency and for the freedoms of ourselves and our fellow men and women, then we have already lost the war. There is still something worth fighting for. It is a duty that is ours to uphold what is good and right. Let the day which will live an infamy be a constant reminder to stay ever-vigilant, be it a trained solider on the frontlines or a simple gaming group...we all have a responsibilty to learn from the past and uphold what so many had given their lives for. Cherish the WWII vets while we still have them among us.

Never forget, never surrender. For great justice. o7
