The Human Scale of War I was one of the lucky thousand Honoluluans and visitors who sat under the stars at Pearl Harbor one night this summer and watched this grand movie unfurl. Intimately tied to the harbor and its world famous Pacific Theatre memorial, the story of Under the Blood Red Sun refreshes the events of December 7, by telling individual stories of a community directly touched by the realization that the unthinkable had become reality. In the audience were some of those who had fought in the resulting war, and many whose families have stories that are repeated through the generations: America, stunned by the attack on its own shores, went into a panic and interned thousands of loyal American citizens for fear that they might be enemy agents.

As a matter of fact, I was a bit wild. As the youngest of four siblings, I got away with things that my older siblings would not have. When I was in kindergarten I had to go sit on "the chair" everyday as a consequence for my not staying on the rug during story time.
I was high energy and liked to push limits and make jokes.
My three older siblings taught me to question authority and to think independently. After we got back to the classroom I sat down at a table with some friends to begin the test. We sat at small round tables, about five or six of us per table. It was quiet as we were all taking the bike safety test very seriously.
I was sitting at a small table with some other classmates. Suddenly, I heard loud noises and a flurry of commotion. I don't remember faces, just a feeling of disorganization, intensity and terror.
