A salute to Elizabeth McIntosh's long-ago-written, never-before-published account of the attack on Pearl Harbor and to The Day for its front-page coverage of this amazing article, "First-hand account of Pear Harbor attack published 71 years later," (Dec. 7).

McIntosh's words are so insightful, so impactful not only from a reporter's first-hand perspective of this horrific bombing raid, but also for her inspiring words to the women of the times illustrating the important contributions they could make towards the war efforts. How unfortunate that her words were silenced because the powers that be felt they were too traumatic for readers. How grateful we should be that her words are now published for all to consider - and to remember.

The NRA has proposed stationing an armed officer in every U.S. school as a way to defend against mass shootings like the one at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. Do you support the NRA's proposal?
Yes, it's a sensible plan. An armed officer would serve as a deterrent and he or she would be able to stop an active gunman before more lives were lost.

No, I'm disappointed the NRA didn't come out with any serious suggestions.

Armed officers would help, but we also need stronger gun control laws.
