Ce l-a făcut pe Miller un erou improbabil

Japanese torpedoes and bombs had also grievously wounded West Virginia, which eventually flooded and settled to the bottom of the harbor with the loss of 130 men killed and 52 wounded. Refloated and ultimately repaired, the battleship rejoined the war and remained in service until its decommissioning in 1947. On the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, Miller was gathering laundry when the first of several Japanese torpedoes slammed into West Virginia. Miller ran to his general-quarters station, only to find it destroyed.

It challenges us to act with mercy even when it’s not in our best interests to do so. You see, it’s easy to show mercy when we are not threatened, when our position is secure, when it costs us nothing to do so. And so he finds out about the existence of Mephibosheth, Jonathan’s son, and Saul’s grandson, who also happens to be the heir to the throne David has claimed. Mephibosheth, we discover, is crippled due to a fall he had when he was five years old.

I have to allow a shout-out here for the piece’s illustration and layout as well – the art and block quotes in Shimmer’s online ‘zine compliment the story excellently. Once when the Apostle Peter asked him how many times we should forgive or show mercy to people who don’t deserve it, Jesus answered by telling the story of a guy who didn’t get it at all… He treats him as if he is his own son, and vows that the young man will eat at the king’s table for the rest of his life. As I read this last part of the story I am reminded of David’s own song, where he sings, “you prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies… and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever…” I don’t know if that fits, but I like it.

What Pearl Harbor Looks Like Today?

Dorie Miller lost his life when the escort carrier Liscome Bay was torpedoed in the Gilbert Islands on November 23, 1943. They were three hectic days and nights for Dorie Miller, his shipmates, and the Liscome Bay squadron (VC-39), and they expected that November 24 would bring more of the same. But time was running out because the enemy was closer than anyone realized. Led by the radical Militant, the Chicago Defender, and other black newspapers, the press ran stories about the humble messman who had risked his life to save a white officer. The black newspapers focused unceasingly on Miller’s exploits, and civil rights groups demanded that he be awarded the Medal of Honor. He would have been the first black to gain the nation’s highest decoration in the two world wars.

After being belatedly commended by Navy Secretary Frank Knox on April 1, 1942, the proudest moment in Dorie Miller’s life came on Wednesday, May 27. Two years and three months after its outbreak, America had been suddenly and brutally thrust into the global war. In a time of segregation, an African-American Pearl Harbor hero emerged as an inspiration to all Americans. Mess Attendant 2nd Class Doris Miller certainly couldn’t have anticipated what happened that morning.

Without breaking the tension of the threat and eventual fight, Kaëlle is built up one piece at a time. From scared girl staring at a darkness, we learn about her skin condition and “Snake Girl” traits, then about her skill with Tonton Macoute and the personal losses she has suffered on her way to this showdown. Which isn’t to trivialize the amount of awesome that can be packed into even an unlikely hero. Take Kaëlle, the hero of Malon Edwards’ “The Half Dark Promise” (Shimmer #23), for instance. Sure, she’s a young girl with a painful skin condition, bullied at school. She’s also a skilled machete-wielding fighter with a clockwork heart and skin that can be hardened into a chrysalis, and she is going to kick the crap out of zonbi la in the half dark, the Pogo.

Miller completed his 17 months of duty aboard the cruiser Indianapolis when she returned to the Puget Sound Navy Yard in Bremerton, Washington, on May 15, 1943. A few weeks later, he was assigned to his fifth ship, the brand new escort carrier USS Liscome Bay (CVE-56). One of the Casablanca-class “jeep carriers” being mass-produced in the Henry J. Kaiser shipyards, the 14,000-ton, thin-skinned flattop had been launched on April 19, 1943, and commissioned on August 7. The battleship USS West Virginia settles on an even keel to the bottom of Pearl Harbor after sustaining multiple torpedo hits from Japanese planes on December 7, 1941. Rescuers in a motor launch pull a sailor from the water as smoke billows.Dorie fired unflinchingly at the enemy raiders for about 15 minutes before running out of ammunition. After helping to rescue more shipmates, he dived into the harbor and swam to safety ashore.

The Navy Cross is the United States military’s second-highest decoration awarded for valor in combat. The Navy Cross is awarded primarily to a member of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and the Coast Guard for extraordinary heroism. Today, it is home to the USS Arizona Memorial, the Battleship Missouri, the Pacific Aviation Museum, and other must-see places. The Arizona sank in about 40 feet of water, though some parts were not submerged, and the ship continued to burn for more than two days. Almost immediately, efforts were undertaken to retrieve bodies, but eventually the decision was made to leave more than 900 entombed in the ship’s wreckage. Do you think cultural characteristics or personal qualities determine how individuals act toward migrating people who settle among them?

Malonzo hit clutch baskets down the stretch while complementing import Jamel Artis and Santos. All this, for a Northport side that misses the services of injured Kevin Ferrer, Jonathan Grey, and Art Dela Cruz; as well as top gun Robert Bolick due to his Gilas Pilipinas duty. He beat out Northport teammate Arwind Santos and Ginebra’s Scottie Thompson in a close race for the weekly citation handed out by the group of reporters covering the PBA beat. The high-flying freshman rose from the deck and steered the Batang Pier out of the hole with a superb performance in their two big wins the past week. That stretched the team’s winning streak following a flat 0-5 start.

Many of the heroes of the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor have been honored with medals and citations. One notable figure from the attack, however, is receiving an unprecedented honor. According to Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly, the United States Navy is naming a new Gerald R. Ford-class aircraft carrier after African-American sailor and Pearl Harbor hero Doris Miller. The honor is even more remarkable considering aircraft carriers in the modern era are typically named for US presidents and other very high-ranking individuals. Miller, by contrast, was an enlisted sailor serving in a segregated military. Following an April 1940 fleet exercise in the Pacific, West Virginia sailed for Pearl Harbor and spent the next 20 months conducting training exercises in Hawaiian waters.

But God’s notions of mercy don’t make a lot of sense to us all of the time, do they? When we read the stories in the Bible we are often confronted with moments where God shows mercy to people that don’t really deserve it. When God’s mercy falls upon those who don’t seem to deserve it, we tend to get our underwear in a bunch, don’t we? In fact, God’s notions of mercy seem appalling and strange to us at times. As a junior, Miller earned Third Team All-AMC North honors while averaging 13.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and three assists per game. But it was the only game Miller didn’t start that spelled trouble for the Falcons’ fifth all-time scorer.

Welch and Taylor were among only five Air Force pilots who managed to get their planes off the ground and engage the Japanese that morning. Total American aircraft losses at Pearl Harbor were estimated at 188 planes destroyed and 159 more damaged, while the Japanese lost just 29 planes. Retaliatory strikes by Japanese planes from Hiryu crippled the Yorktown, and the carrier was later sunk by a Japanese submarine. Yamamoto’s plan was shattered, and the Imperial Japanese Navy never recovered from the loss of four frontline aircraft carriers and irreplaceable pilots and aircrews.

There was a game within the game as Krunal Pandya dismissed younger brother Hardik, the first time he had bowled to him in a competitive match. I think that there’s definitely something for Christians to hold on to in this story that reminds us of Jesus, and of the great mercy of God. But I also think that in addition to being a reminder, this story also offers us a challenge. He would have been terrified to be summoned to court, and probably thought that he was going to be executed as the last survivor from Saul’s family, and the heir to the throne to boot.

Along with the other missing sailors, Miller was officially presumed dead by the Navy in 1944. He earned numerous honors during his years of service, including the Purple Heart, the World War II Victory Medal, and the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal; and in 1973, the frigate USS Miller was commissioned by the Navy. Miller was one of four sailors recognized for serving with “bravery and distinction” by the Distinguished Sailors U.S. Postal Service stamp series in 2010.

The aircraft carrier is the symbol of American power – 90,000 tons of diplomacy, the Navy likes to say. Almost all of them are named after presidents — until Acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly broke with tradition. The Japanese also sank or damaged three cruisers, three destroyers, an anti-aircraft training ship, and one minelayer. 188 U.S. aircraft were destroyed; 2,403 Americans were killed and 1,178 others were wounded.
