Today is the 75th anniversary of the "date which will live in infamy", when the Japanese navy attacked Pearl Harbor and Hickam Field in Hawaii. Early this morning, a moment of silence was observed at Pearl Harbor. About 4,000 people were expected to attend a commemoration ceremony. Survivors of the attack attended the ceremony in Hawaii, or a reception in Los Angeles. As some look back, the attack is said to have "shaped the modern world".
