Today is a dark day in American history.

December 7th, 1941 a Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor killed thousands, nearly wiped out the United States Navy and flung America into World War II.  I've seen a zillion announcements today that "it's snowing" but,  I haven't seen much about the Pearl Harbor anniversary.

Please remember those who died on this day, way back then and all who have died defending America since then.  Bear in mind as we play in the snow, shop for Christmas gifts or rock our day away that our freedom to do so, came at a  cost.

I realize this website is primarily for rock news and light-hearted content like hotties and fun events but, this day shouldn't go unnoticed. Remember, as Santanaya said, that "those who forget the past, are condemned to repeat it". I know people whose grandparents and great-grandparents died in that attack. They'll never forget, neither should anyone else.

Much thanks, love and respect to all Veterans.
