7:35 a.m. on a Sunday morning, Hawaii abruptly awoke to the Rising Sun of Japan on the wings of aircraft. This was not a friendly awakening and launched our country into a war we had observed from afar.
At the same time the planes were bombing Pearl Harbor the Japanese Ambassadors were meeting in Washington incurring the wrath of our Secretary of State.
The Secretary of State, unknowing of what was happening in Pearl Harbor, lashed out at the ambassadors in anger.
