The Attack on Pearl Harbor
By Erin Horner
  

1     Most mornings on the island are calm. The Pacific Ocean is mighty, but the sound of its crashing waves makes a peaceful alarm clock. That morning, however, the ocean was not my wake-up call; the terrible roar of Japanese fighter planes was. It was December 7, 1941, and our nation's military was suddenly under attack.
 
2     For two hours Japanese planes bombed Pearl Harbor. In just two hours, more than two thousand people were killed. One thousand more were injured. Many of those were my fellow sailors. Many more were my friends.
