Infamy

Filed under: — Kate @ 11:20 am EST

Today is Pearl Harbor Day, probably the defining historical moment for a generation of Americans.

But for me it has a deeper personal meaning, because my grandfather (my mom’s father), passed away seven years ago today. It’s hard to believe how much time has gone by.

I still miss him terribly, but I know I’m lucky to have had him around for as long as I did. I never knew my dad’s father—he died before I was born. Cigarettes killed both of them.

So…

If you know any WWII vets, give them a hug today.

If you’re lucky enough to have living grandparents, and you haven’t talked to them in a while, pick up the phone.

And if you are a smoker, find a way to QUIT.
