Detail about the attack on Pearl Harbor

We just passed two prominent dates for many of us, December 7th, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and December 8th, recognized as Buddha's enlightenment day in Japan and elsewhere by Mahayana Buddhists - Bodhi day. But in Japan those two are the same day. The Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor early on Rohatsu (8th day, 12th month) as they call it. Japan during daylight savings time is 19 hours ahead of Hawaii. The attack happened on December 7th at 7:48am Hawaii time. In Japan, it was 2:48am on December 8th. I can't see that as an accident. The best thing is we've evolved and we're friends now and we have much bigger problems than to think about that old stuff.
