The 75th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

A minute of silence was held to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor.

As U.S. President Barack Obama paid tribute to the over 2,400 people who died in the attack, an unseen visitor stood watching.

An hour earlier, an explosion had occurred in a far distant part of the universe.

An object had moved at an incredible speed from the impact of the explosion. It travelled trillions and trillions and trillions of times faster than the speed of light.

The object had arrived at the blue planet known as Earth within an hour.

It then turned into an entity bald and nude. Its hands were reptilian claws and its feet were amphibian webbed.

At least, that’s what it looked like if anyone could see it.

It stood and watched at the minute of silence to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

“A date which will live in infamy” is how President Franklin Delano Roosevelt described December 7th 1941 the day of the attack on Pearl Harbor.

If the entity that stood there understood anything about the nature of time, it might have appreciated the irony of those remarks.

For December 7th 2016 marked another Day of Infamy- or at least the start of a new Celestial Infamy.

December 7th 2016- TIME Magazine announces its choice of Donald Trump as Person of The Year.
