This video explains what happened the day of the attack and the measures taken to fight back.

I picked Pearl Harbor because I knew nothing about it and wanted to learn more. I learned that even though the U.S. lost many people they can still come back and fight strongly for those who lost their lives. I hope that people will learn that Pearl Harbor was an awful time but the U.S. fought their way to victory.
