As I watch "Pearl Harbor" with Ben Afleck, it breaks my heart to watch the battleships turnover and drown all those men. In my small Southwest Louisiana hometown, we had 5 in the Bataan Death March, 4 came home, 1 did not. My best friend's uncle was lost on the "Arizona". Out of less than 3000 residents, that's an interesting statistic.
I plan to watch "Pearl Harbor" tomorrow night after I get home from work. It's gonna be really, really difficult. Yet it's important to remember.
