My daughter and I were watching a movie when she said, "Mom, explain the whole communism, cold war thing to me because it didn't make sense in History Class. In History it was like, "Communists want everyone to be happy and for all people to share the same, and so we were afraid they wanted to kill us." I assumed she was exaggerating, so I did a little impromptu poll of young people the next few days. Apparently kids from all over the United States who are beneath the age of 21 have no idea what those days were really like. So - how do you explain this to young people?
