Five years

Everyone has their 9-11 story. Where they were, what they were doing when they heard about it. I didn't hear about it until two o'clock that afternoon. My boy was almost two then. We were watching Barney and assorted other crap all on video tapes. At around 10 am we went to the library. I was listening to a book on tape so I didn't get any news on the radio.

Anyway. He was almost two. He's almost seven now. He's about as removed from the GWOT as I was from Vietnam, I guess. (I was born in 1972) He's started asking about 9-11 now. His understanding of "bad guys" basically comes from cartoons and video games. I'm trying to figure out how to explain it to him. I'd be really appreciative of any advice anyone has.
