A Sunday shattered

     The time, 11:55 EST, I was looking forward to my birthday and listening to the WLS on the radio when the announcer broke into the station’s music with the announcement that the Japanese had just bombed Pearl Harbor and Hickam Field. Nineteen ships were sunk or damaged and 2,300 dead.

     President F.D. Roosevelt said in a speech on Dec. 8 “a date that will live in infamy” and the United States declared war on Japan on Dec. 8 and on Germany and Italy on Dec. 11, 1941.
