I so appreciate my Kansas City Star. I noticed that on Friday, only one of the paper’s comic strips, “Red and Rover,” referenced the significance of this fateful date: Dec. 7, 1941, when more than 2,400 Americans died at Pearl Harbor. (6B)
In the comic, the character Red states, “We can never forget.” Then his dog Rover follows with the comment and question: “We won’t — but what about people way off in the future?”
Have we become these “people of the future” who will remember Pearl Harbor Day and its significance? Or are we too far removed in time, and already forgetting?
