Pearl Harbor

"Live in Infamy"

"Live in Infamy"

I asked our fifth grader this morning if she knew why December 7 is a day “which will live in infamy.” She asked, “What is ‘infamy.’” I said, “Something remembered for a very bad thing that happened.”  She said, “Well, I don’t want to have a bad day.” I told her that not every December 7 is a bad day, but it’s a day to remember because it’s the day that the Japanese shocked the world by attacking Pearl Harbor.
