Pearl Harbor remembered

On the 73rd anniversary of Pearl Harbor, I thought it might be appropriate to post a few photos from our trip to the Pearl Harbor museum and the Arizona Memorial.

When we were planning our family trip to Hawaii, everyone agreed this was the one stop we had to make on our trip. I’m glad we were able to take our kids. Even if the history lessons didn’t completely sink in, at least they can understand a little bit of what happened that day and why we must always remember the attack on Pearl Harbor.
