Why Look Back When You Can Look Forward?

On December 7, the world got a little older, by some 2,300 sailors. Pearl Harbor lay devastated, as did a Country.

But, as we have before, and even recently, we dug deep and pulled ourselves up. In fact, we're still fighting.

Perhaps it is the military brat in me, or maybe it was my time sailing on the Eagle. I don't know. I thank those who gave their lives so I could do things like write this blog and say what I want.

I have yet to hear a 21-gun salute that doesn't snap me to attention inside and make me salute. It's not something I generally talk (or wirte) about.

So, I thought I'd take a look back, and see what else happened this day in history.

Well, in 1872, the HMS Challenger sets sail on 3-year world oceanographic cruise. There is apparently some dispute whether the voyage started today. We declare war on Austria in 1817 (ironic?). In 1972, Apollo 17 was launched - the most recent US manned mission to the Moon.

And, in early recorded history 0185, Emperor Lo-Yang, saw supernova MSH15-42.

We should keep looking forward. It can only get better.
