The Annual Sushi Day Lunch sounds so tame, so.. politically correct. At work, a group of us used to gather near 12/7 or 4/18 to eat kamikaze rolls at the local Japanese restaurant – the Pearl Harbor or Doolittle Raid memorial lunch. A way to remember and honor the sacrifice of our fathers and grandfathers –there is always a new young thing who didn’t know about the Doolittle Raid, or who barely understood the significance of 12/7; the only date they know anymore is 9/11. But somehow, our annual memorial lunch is no longer acceptable? Eating kamikaze rolls is… what, exactly?...disrespectful?
