Morning all, I'm ranging in Edna this morning at McDonald's, and asking people what they think about Pearl Harbor and 9/11. Yesterday was the anniversary of the Japanese attacks on Pearl Harbor -- attacks occurred Dec. 7, 1941. Clearly, the two events share some similarities, but which one do you think is more historically significant to the U.S.? Come find me and let me know!

It seems I'm getting some interesting responses. Most people are saying they agree Pearl Harbor was more significant because it propelled the US into the Second World War. I guess I assumed many more people would answer 9/11 because of its relative recentness. What do you think?

Here's what a few people around Edna think: Image
