We will never forget


To the editor:

Next Dec. 7 is the 80th anniversary of Japan’s vicious sneak attack against the U.S. military at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

I anticipate that President Biden will give it the remembrance that Donald Trump has neglected to do for four years. I have often wondered why Trump ignored this sacred memory. Was it just out of ignorance? Or was it also to avoid offending his potential Japanese hotel/real estate partners?

To criticize Japan over Pearl Harbor might remind the world about Japan’s brutal war against China, and the tens of millions of deaths it caused in east Asia.

When we remember Pearl Harbor, let us also remember Colin Kelly, America’s first famous World War II hero, who died in battle soon after the war began after shooting down a number of enemy war planes.
