The world is remembering more than 2,400 people who were killed when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941.

Very few Pearl Harbor survivors are still alive today, but those who are still here remain dedicated to paying their respects.

A GoFundMe account raised more than $4,000 for John Seelie, a Pearl Harbor veteran.

The person who created the account said Seelie's heart was broken when he found out he couldn't attend the memorial ceremonies this year.

Seelie would normally go through The Greatest Generation Foundation. However, the trip this year was canceled because only four survivors were healthy enough to make the trip, and the foundation requires at least six to make the trip feasible.

Seelie's daughter updated the page and said her dad was on his way to Hawaii, thanks to the people who donated.

If you want to join in on the ceremonies that are happening today at Pearl Harbor, go here for a live-stream throughout the day, including tonight's parade.
