Day of Infamy, 1941 memory - Williamsburg Wreath
December 7, 1941 Pearl Harbor
We lived in a small two story bungalow on 9th Street in Charlotte, NC.
Three children, Ellouise 5, Lynda 3, and Kathy 6 months
It was a Sunday
I went for an afternoon car ride
with the neighbors - the Weeks.
We were stopped at the corner of Hawthorn Lane and Seventh Street
by a traffic jam, cars stopped,
"it must be the football game."
young boys running from car to car waving a pink newspaper
shouting "Read all about it. Read all about it."
Mr. Weeks bought a paper
We are at WAR!
I did not understand that our world had just been turned up-side-down.
