Dec. 7, 1941

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

We'd better make sure it's remembered, the facts and history, because God knows what a lot of kids are being taught in school about it.

In my US History class in 1961 the teacher, a retired WWII Submarine Commander taught about the Rape of Nanking, the attack on Pearl Harbor, the Bataan Death March, and other Japanese atrocities, which even in '61 were missing from our History Books as were any mention of the Soviet purges, the starving of the Kulaks, or NAZI atrocities. The dumbing down had begun long since. My kids, in High School in the late '80s were totally ignorant of recent history that the PC crowd had decided was "irrelevant".

The largest regret of my life is not homeschooling my chirruns.
