My dad, Russell Day, was on the front page of The World on Saturday, Dec. 7.

"A Pearl Harbor survivor remembers"

"The story of a U.S. Navy Gunners Mate"

I just want to quote his last sentence, just before the short obituary at the end:

"We cannot change the world, and if we could, war is not the way!"

It is important that I state that we can, and must, change the world. Not by changing others, but ourselves, one step at a time.

We all have a unique purpose to fulfill, and if we don't remember what it is — ask, and it will be given.

I wish the happiest of Holy Days to one and all!
