The U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor July 2007 I went to Hawaii this summer in July and we made it a point to stop at The U.S.S. Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor. I took this picture from atop the memorial. The memorial sits atop the sunken vessel. 1177 sailors are entombed in the sunken vessel. You have to take a short boat ride over to the Memorial and not one person spoke a word while on the memorial, even children were silent. It was a powerful moment for me and I choked up with tears. The Arizona went down with tons of oil and it still seeps up to the top today. May those who perished on that fateful day on December 7, 1941 rest in peace!

Looking at this and knowing how many men were lost, still makes me choke up today. I've never been to Pearl Harbor, but when I worked at Miracle Ear I had a customer who was serving on the USS Oklahoma when it was hit, he describe it to me, how he was in the water and what was happening around him. It was as if it had just happened. The look on his face was so sad and he seemed so far away as he talked to me. I don't think I'll ever forget it.

Naomi-While in Hawaii I met a man who told me that his grandfather was feverishly trying to rescue sailors from the Arizona and told me that his g.f. also said the sailors were pounding on the hull with metal tools to send a signal that they were trapped.

Let us never forget that freedom is not free. RIP to those unfortunate sailors on the Arizona.
