Fear is never forgotten. Author James Kent takes us on a journey back to World War II and gives us a glimpse into what life was like for an American child growing up during the war years. “We lived in fear every day. In fact, even now, sixty years after the war, I still get apprehensive whenever I hear a plane flying overhead. I guess old habits are hard to break. Of course, I laugh at myself for such foolishness, but that is what war does to you. You never forget. I remember running through the streets in total darkness while the air raid sirens blared and trying to get home or find cover and hoping I wouldn’t run into a telephone pole or fall over something while listening for the shrill screams of the falling bombs.”
