On the drive home from school this morning, I learned, via NPR, that today is the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. I found myself wondering throughout the day, as I listened to various broadcasts relating to the historical event, if everyone who was alive at that time remembers this anniversary without any reminding. Maybe with enough time it fades. I doubt anyone who was alive at the time will ever forget the significance of September 11; will ever not have the details of the anniversary come to mind when the date is realized. Not for the first or the last time, I found myself missing my grandparents and wishing I could ask them about it. Now there is nobody left to ask.
