War is not the ideal state for any nation to be in. But when a nation is attacked, they have no choice to fight back.
Today is the 78th anniversary of Pearl Harbor. Up until the day that Japan attacked, many Americans were wary of getting involved in the war. Many still had very active memories from World War I. But the attack changed everything.
A generation of young men died that day, their bodies entombed in the sea. They died fighting for their country. 78 years later, their service and their sacrifice will never be forgotten.
May the memories of those who died that day forever be a blessing.

I loved this book because the author lays it all on the page. It is an honest, heartfelt, sometimes painful memoir of a time in her life when she was living as two different people.

We know at some point, we must come out of the closet, in whatever form that takes.
