Four years

Four years since the US went into Iraq. I was pregnant with Ariana. It seems so long ago. I'm not going to debate the should've, could've, would'ves at the moment. But I sit in wonder at the thought that my children have only been present in a world where we are at war. What does this mean for them? What does the future hold for my children, and all those children living in Iraq? How do I explain what is occuring? The 4yo mind isn't really enough to understand the complexity of politics, terrorism, and all the lives lost over the last four years. It's just something I think about, and think about often.
