Each year as Pearl Harbor Day approaches I start thinking of when my parents got married in a little church in Frytown, Iowa.
Of course today is the anniversary of that tragic day in Hawaii. On the news tonight they talked about how only two survivors of the USS Arizona are still living. One of them lives in Grass Valley which is near Sacramento. I also saw an article in the newspaper and also posts on Facebook about Pearl Harbor today.
I usually do see something in the news, but one year I was in Tokyo and didn’t get a reminder. That was before Facebook, and there was no mention in the local news that day.
I talked to my parents yesterday and wished them a happy anniversary. We talked about how I started my current job the day before their 30th, which means that my 27th work anniversary was yesterday.
I am now thinking about Niagara Falls, as that is where they went on their honeymoon. They drove through snow as they headed out on their first adventure as newlyweds.
