and far more significant than 12/7/96. On 12/7/41 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor. FDR called it a day that shall live in infamy. A very long war was started but the United States was victorius maybe the greatest moment in American history certainly one of the greatest. Until 9/11 it was the worst attack on American soil. One of the great things about Americans is that we've never forgotten the brave men who died that day and we never will.
