The view was expansive. The calm of the site was not what I expected. I was torn whether to break the sanctity of the place and document my visit with a photograph. There is peace at this place of horrific loss of life. This place, Pearl Harbor, is a time capsule and monument to tragedy, heroism, and bravery.
The serenity of the harbor and the still glass-topped water are so deceptive as they hide the brutality that took place here.
