It was a Sunday morning. Just after dawn on December 7th, 1941, Japanese forces launched a sneak attack on the U.S. Naval base at Pearl Harbor. American forces, most still in their beds, where taken almost completely by surprise. The U.S. pacific fleet, which lay at anchor in the harbor, was devastated. When word of the attack’s success reached the Japanese fleet, the sailors rejoiced, that is, all but one – Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto.
Tradition holds that instead of celebrating, Yamamoto, having fallen into a state of severe depression, said to his jubilant staff, “I fear all we have done is awaken the sleeping giant.” Though that quote, one of the most famous of World War II, has never been verified, it is a known fact that Yamamoto held deep concerns regarding an attack on the United States. It is also a known fact that Yamamoto once said to several Japanese Cabinet members regarding war with the US, “I can run wild for six months, after that, I have no expectation of success.”

How does one capture a lifetime of memories in a split second. What nudges them to the surface. Do we possess the ability to call upon them at any given moment or do they come to visit only when they choose? Are they dormant in our mind until we need them or are they deep inside us just available upon request?
These were questions buzzing around in my mind recently as I drove home from a funeral home visitation. There is nothing like the death of a close family friend to conjure up some memories, especially when you have known the person almost all of your life!
Years add up more quickly than we can calculate. Time passes us without even saying "Excuse me." Before you know it, you are not a little child any more and you have been ushered into the role your parents once played. The other night, however, I became a little boy again, if only for an hour or so.
