Loss, Loss, And Something Gained

Yes, it is the Day. Above is a picture of the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
It is also the anniversary of my Mother passing away, so yeah-we have that also.
As horrific as the attack on Pearl Harbor was, it was the impetus, the rallying point, which
brought us into the World War.
Without Pearl Harbor, would Hitler have won? I don't deal in "IF's" or "Might Have's" so it feels strange to posit such an idea.
War-as long as sinful man acts sinfully, we will need to confront evil with good.
War can be righteous. War can be sinful.
Cling to what is good and abhor evil-be honest and truthful and confront the liars as you meet them.
Love God.

I don't often speak of my family here, as I like to keep my private life private.
My sister and her husband have visited the Pearl Harbor Memorial, and they brought me back a hat.
I won't wear it, but I have it and appreciate what it represents.
I also am thinking of my Mother's passing four years ago-it was a hard time, but I have Peace.
