It was this day sixty-four years ago when a foreign power sneaked an unprovoked attack upon us.
It is worth remembering that about the same number of people were killed at that event as at another event sixty years later, at New York’s World Trade Center.
The difference is that four years on from 1941, we knew better who we were and what we stood for and what we could be proud of.
Now, four years on from 9/11, can we say the same?
We need to realize that we are our own worst enemies, and that times have changed and we haven’t.
Who are we, and who are they? And why? One answer, please.
Oh for those simpler days of “us” ‘n “them”.
