Time passes

(Recommended by The Mountain Man)

People tend to mark the passage of time by remembering events of the past--"It was the last year we had a decent snow" or "It was the year so-and-so broke her arm", using them as points from which to measure the passage of time.

It's been 65 years since Pearl Harbor was attacked at 7:55 AM, Sunday, December 7, 1941. That's the point that most of the survivors seem to measure the passage of their lives from.

Here's hoping that this won't be the last anniversary they are able to mark.
