Alexander asked me tonight, “Daddy, let’s watch the nightly news!”
I replied, “Why do you want to watch the nightly news?”
“Because it has army men!”
My son is four. This war has been going on his entire life. From his perspective it is normal to see army men on the nightly news every night. From my perspective that is a shameful and drepressing reality. How and when do I explain the war to my son? How will we as a generation be understood in history for letting such a horrible mess perpetuate for so long? How…?
