A day that will live in infamy

Seventy years ago, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, igniting a force that changed history.

Though it's a movie about the European theater of World War II, I think of that lovely quote near the end of Saving Private Ryan, when the mortally wounded Captain Miller leans in to Private Ryan as he whispers his last words... "Earn this."

Those are words that should inspire all of us.
