Days of Infamy

  1. the state of being well known for some bad quality or deed.
    "a day that will live in infamy"
    • an evil or wicked act.
      "one of history's greatest infamies"

December 7, 1941

While President Roosevelt's words, a date which will live in infamy, are well known the world over, I should like to suggest that there are quite a few days of infamy in history. Here are just a few recent ones:

September 11, 2001

April 19, 1995

July 11, 1995

April 6, 1994 

April 19, 1993

August 9, 1945

August 6, 1945

These are just a few days of infamy over the past 73 years. Throughout human history there have been many, many more. 

On this Second Sunday of Advent, let us look forward to a time when there will be no more days of infamy to add to the list.
