Today is December 7th.
Seventy years ago on this date World War II began with the Japanese bombing Pearl Harbor.
There were 1,364 days from Pearl Harbor until the end of WW II.
Outside a cemetery on one of the islands in the Pacific the following is chiseled in stone:
When you go home
Tell them for us and say
For your tomorrows
We gave up ours today
