Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day: President Biden Honors Those Whose Lives Were Cut Short

President Joe Biden of the United States of America has joined all Americans in honoring those who lost their lives 81 years ago today at the Pearl Harbor Naval Base.

The Imperial Japanese Navy with 353 planes 81 years ago today attacked the US fleet at the Pearl Harbor Naval Base, Hawaii, killing at least 2,403 people which have been recorded as one of the saddest days in the history of the United States of America.

The attack which happened on Sunday, December 7th, 1941 around 8:00 a.m was a surprise military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service upon the United States against the naval base at Pearl Harbor in Honolulu territory of Hawaii. It was noted that the US was a neutral ground at that time, but the attack leads to their involvement into the World War II the next day.

The President together with other Americans took to their social media handles to pass a sorrowful message to all those whose lives were cut-short during the ugly incident.

In his speech, Biden stated that they reflect on the resilience of their Armed Forces who withstood the attack and built the most capable fighting force in the world. He concluded by saying “we do not break and we never back down”.
