The Restless Waves

The USS Arizona Memorial, as seen from underwater, looking upwards.

This haunting image was made from the submerged deck of
the battleship
USS Arizona
looking upwards towards the structure that memorializes what
happened here on December 7, 1941. A date which will live in

The US National Park Service has

a short history

of the events leading to the beginning of what we call World

Thank you to all who had their lives taken from them that

of peace, for which we are eternally thankful. May they rest
in peace, secure in the knowledge that their sacrifice was
not in vain.
