オバマ大統領:パールハーバーの演説(2016.12.27, Remarks by President Obama and Prime Minister Abe of Japan at Pearl Harbor)

PRESIDENT OBAMA: To Americans — especially to those of us who call Hawaii home — this harbor is a sacred place. As we lay a wreath or toss flowers into waters that still weep, we think of the more than 2,400 American patriots — fathers and husbands, wives and daughters — manning Heaven’s rails for all eternity. We salute the defenders of Oahu who pull themselves a little straighter every December 7th, and we reflect on the heroism that shone here 75 years ago.
