 Good Morning Scots!

Put the "D" in Determination:  We all have dreams.  But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of DETERMINATION, dedication, self-discipline, and effort! - Jesse Owens (An American track and field athlete and four-time Olympic gold medalist in the 1936 Games. Owens specialized in the sprints and the long jump and was recognized in his lifetime as "perhaps the greatest and most famous athlete in track and field history").

Today in History:

At 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II. The American contribution to the successful Allied war effort spanned four long years and cost more than 400,000 American lives.
