A Day Which will Live in Infamy

A day which will live in infamy.”  Those words by President Franklin D Roosevelt started the 2nd world war for the United States.  As a historian this day has significant importance to US and world history.  This is the day that Americans got their heads out of their asses and realized that they can’t hide from world events and this is the day that also signaled the end of the depression.  All of us know that FDR’s programs couldn’t end the depression but mobilizing American troops for the war effort is what ended the depression.  But this day in America will forever and always live in infamy in this country because this was the first time that Americans were attacked on American shores in a sneak attack.  I will always remember where I was September 11, 2001 and my grandpa will always remember where he was December 7, 1941.
