Notice the date, it’s the issue of ‘Life’ magazine just before Pearl Harbor attacks and the US entry into WWII. And it has my absolute favorite airplane...

This photo was taken at Pearl Harbor. On 7th December 1941, just before 8am, Japanese Forces conducted a military air strike on a US Naval Base in Hawaii. They managed to damage and destroy several naval vessels including 8 battleships and over 300 aeroplanes. More than 2000 people died that day including civilians. On 8th December 1941, the US President, Franklin D Roosevelt, declared war on Japan. Lying on the coast of Oahu (the BIG Island) several vessels to this day remain under the surface of the water and can be seen clearly on trips across the bay. Pearl Harbor is free to visit and I was lucky enough to meet a soldier that was present back then on my first trip in 2014. Even though Pearl Harbor yields terrible memories of that fateful day, the people you meet here (including the veterans) simply look at it as a piece of history and talk about it casually, educating the people around them. Almost 77 years since this tragedy-we shall remember them. If you love history, this is a phenomenal, well kept tribute which is run on donations and I urge you all to give a little when you visit. #pearlharbor #pearlharbormemorial #america #hawaii #hawaiistagram #history #ussarizonamemorial #ussarizona #december1941 #oahu #bigisland #travel #travelphotography #historical #travelphotography #traveloics #followforfollow #instadaily #instatravel #travelling #backpacking #exploring #passportready #wanderlust #world #backpacker #life #abroad #landscapephotography

Another build, an old Airfix 1/72 Val Japanese dive bomber. This one also came with multiple varieties and I went with one from the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) on the carrier Akagi in December 1941 during the Pearl Harbor attack 🇯🇵 #japanese #japan #imperialjapan #ijn #imperialjapanesenavy #december1941 #akagi #akagiaircraftcarrier #val #valdivebomber #divebomber #wwii #ww2 #wwiijapan #ww2japanese #airfixmodels #airfix #172scale #plane #scalemodel

Heute durfte ich in einem Houstoner Pflegeheim einige amerikanische Kriegsveteranen interviewen, dabei wurde mir als "Dankeschön" und zur Erinnerung diese Originalzeitung überreicht, die den eigentlichen Beginn des Zweiten Weltkriegs verkündet... Ich habe immer noch Gänsehaut!

December 8, 1941. America was forced to defend its World War Champion title, coming back from a cheap sucker punch by the opponents.

I love this quote because I'm all for the body loving community. I know how hard it is to embrace your flaws whether they a physical or mental or emotional or part of your personality.
When you truly embrace all of you no one can turn you against yourself and I love that.
What is your favorite part of who you are? Physical or personality wise.
