Postcards from Hawai'i



When you think about the people who have died serving our country, it is a very humbling experience.



Even today, we are still blessed to have patriotic men and women who are willing to do something for me, and my children, that I am unable to do.




They are willing to leave behind their families, in order to protect mine.


I am so very thankful to them.

Wow, It must be a humbling and emotional experience to see Pearl Harbor, and remember what happened on that day.

I visited the USS Arizona Memorial about 7 years ago. It gave me chills and yes, it is very humbling.

Hawaii is beautiful! Thanks for reminding me with your photos.

TJ. Wow, to think you have been to Pearl Harbour....It's been made famous by so many films yet you have been there to experience the reality of it.

Pearl Harbor was nice.

It is very sad too.

One drawback to those who may come to visit:

There is a very long wait to see the memorial unless you get there very early in the morning. If you get there around mid-morning or in the afternoon, you could wait for up to four hours for your turn on the ferry to the memorial.

However, it does not cost anything to see it. They are very grateful for donations though.

later...
