My Son and War

My son was born after 9/11.  He has an interesting view of War.  Since old enough to understand, he's heard about "The War on Terror", The War in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc...  He knows somewhat of what happened on 9/11 and the fall of the Twin Towers.  

Because of this, he has a view that war is normal and happening in many places.  Tonight he asked me "if the war for the Twin Towers was still going on"?  

I'm a child of the "Cold War" so it is interesting to hear him talk about the world through his lens.  He would not be shocked at all if you told him that there was a war going on somewhere in Colorado.  To him, its just a part of his world.  

He's most concerned about the war for Cybertron, and at the moment he seems very peaceful, he's drumming a pencil to the beat of a Joe Bonamassa concert on TV.  :-)

It's so interesting telling our kids about 9/11. Ours don't really get it yet; maybe someday they will.
