Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

MA Blogger: Brenda Bernstorf

               December 7, 1941 marks the dawn attack at the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor. This day is set aside to remember the 2, 402 people who were killed and the 1,282 people who were wounded.

On the lighter side, it is also “Cotton Candy Day” and “Letter-Writing Day.” Not many people write letters anymore. They may send a birthday card via mail service but not too many letters. There is something precious about a personal letter. The letter is enduring not disposable like email or texting. My mother wrote a letter to me every week while I was in college. She set aside time in her busy Sunday to write and I always received a letter on Wednesday or Thursday.

In my mother’s personal effects, she had letters written to her by my daughter. If your children need to practice letter writing – have them write to a grandparent!

Write a letter and enjoy some cotton candy today!
