December 7, 1941.  A date which will live in infamy. – President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Pearl Harbor Address to the Nation.

Today is the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Today it seems like everything is still repeating, echoing — during the early 1940’s, people felt the world was changing and there were people looking to dominate and seize power and spread fear ignorance and violence.

What have we learned?  Are times and people now really so different?

With that weighing on my mind, I find a way to relax and escape, get the mind off things.

Watching old Black & White movies of the period when America entered World War II.

In remembrance, and staying true to this blog, I also wanted to put on Besame Cosmetics 1941 Special Edition Victory Red Lipstick.  This special edition lipstick comes with a little victory pin.  A little history is included in the Besame hotlink, along with the special collaboration they are doing.  To support our veterans, $5 of each set is donated to the “Hope For The Warriors” organization.

To all those who gave their lives in service to their country.  Our Veterans.  Thank YOU!
