December 7th, 1941…”A Date Which Will Live in Infamy”

Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily or are just some fun topics! Today is December 7th, 2007, I’m Cody, and today’s discussion is about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

Remembrance, sorrow, and bitterness will sweep the nation on this sad day. On December 7th, 1941, Japanese aircrafts attacked Pearl Harbor, a Navy base in Hawaii. On that day, the United States had no choice but to join in on World War II. Until then, the United States has completely stayed out of the European war.

Over 2,000 people died on that day, and left about 1,000 wounded. Two Naval ships were wrecked beyond repair. After the attack, the US bombed Japan twice and finally Japan surrendered.

“This date is a horrible day,” says Melanie, a writer at the Modern Typewriter. “I can’t even imagine what those people experienced.”

Many families had suffered, but they moved on. For memorial purposes, we will temporarily change the design to black, so we can remember those who risked their lives for us. The following day we will change to our normal design. Remember, I’m Cody and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!
