Today is the 64th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Indeed it is true that this day has lived in infamy, but I also feel that the importance of it is lost on many younger people. Those who suggest that war is always unavoidable must remember that they are talking about an ideal, not reality. Peace is what we strive for. It is also has to be earned and protected. Without military might, we can have no peace for there would be no strength to protect it. Without the proven willingness to use military force, we will always be under attack from those who wish take our peace.
