In all dis holiday madness and rush, today will seem like any oddah day for da current - and future - generations.
But for those who are still around and makule enough, have dis day stamped in our coconut shells. It's something we all can share with future generations but as history shows, it diminishes with every passing year and becomes nothing more than a chapter you have to read about in high school World History class.
Personally, I'll never forget da experience I had with a fellow Kwonic, NEO, who blessed us with a personal tour of the USS Missouri. It was surreal like and many a chicken skin moment was had as we took in all da mo'olelo's he had to share and da vast massiveness of da ship. NEO was recently lucky enough to share his mana'o with da NFL which he was giddy about. 😀
Also, if you get a chance, check out da Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade which will start at Fort DeRussey and go along da famed Kalakaua Avenue all da way to da Waikiki Shell. One of our faithful Kwonic, King Katonk, has one of his keiki participating all da way from California! Check out da acclaimed Arcadia High School Marching Band (tentatively #57 out of 59 groups).
For those who are unable to make it but still wanted to check it out, it is streaming live at 6pm on www.pearlharborparade.org. Check it out.
