No one alive has experienced a major war on American soil. No one. We adults can relate to 9/11, which still seems fresh, but that simply doesn't compare to a massive ground invasion, where the tanks roll in and start killing people. Even 9/11, which is the emotional touchstone of so many Americans today, seems like a token holiday to today's youth. I know, because I asked. My students are all 15-18 years old, so not one of them was a sentient being during that horrible day. A few of them said their parents told them about September 11th, but for others, they didn't even [...]

When I got to college in 1992, Pearl Jam was a big deal, and Kurt Cobain was still alive. The first Gulf War had recently ended, and Bill Clinton had not yet assumed office. As a freshman, I took a Poli Sci class with a fiery professor, and learned a lot about the Cold War, and Spheres of Influence. We were taught about an important book, which had just been released by Francis Fukuyama, which theorized “The End of History.” (Insert ironic joke here.) It's now 2017, and for the last three semesters, I've been teaching Art History at the local community [...]
