These were the words of President Roosevelt in his speech after the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. The surprise attack was horrifying and devastating to the entire US. For the next two weeks we will read about the awful consequences suffered by innocent Japanese Americans living on the West Coast. On Monday, December 2, students will learn about the attack on Pearl Harbor using a web quest.

Learning about this awful mistake will hopefully keep us from ever allowing it to happen again.
