As I was driving through town today I happened to drive by Historical Washington Square and saw this.
These gentlemen were gathered to pay tribute to the fallen at Pearl Harbor at exactly 12:00 noon Eastern Standard time, which would've been 7:00 AM Hawaii time. The time of the attack that fateful Sunday morning. It was complete with a rifle salute and the playing of TAPS. It was moving.
The beautiful brick building on the left is The Colony House. It was one of the oldest houses in the country and is where some of our country's forefathers stood on the balcony and declared Rhode Island's independence four months before the colonies collectively declared independence. There's a little history for you.
Here they are marching off after their tribute.
This was beautiful. What was amazing, is that there no one was there. I was the only person standing in the square watching. I don't know if it wasn't publicized well or what. Like I said, I just happened to be driving by and parked quickly.
