In 1881 Clara Barton founded the American Red Cross. The Red Cross offers neutral humanitarian care for all victims of war and natural disasters. In addition to disaster and war relief, the Red Cross is largest supplier of blood and blood products in the United States. The Red Cross also helps thousands of our soldiers who are separated by military duties from their families stay connected. An average of 91 cents of every dollar the Red Cross spends is invested in humanitarian programs and services.  Learn more at redcross.org

Bonnie Pickett was a former Red Cross nurse working at a local hospital in Hawaii during the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1942. Her story is an example of how everyone pulled together in the ripple effect of one devastating historic event. The rest of  this week we will hear in her own words her experience.
