    Explaining world politics & being Jewish to my 9 year old
    I have been listening to the news lately and probably need to explain some things to my 9 year old. He is very inquisitive and one of those kids that will pick up on the topic of the talk radio in the car while the other kids look out the window.

    When I was a little girl growing up - some "older kids down the street" told me to run home and tell my parents they were f-n Jews. That was my first lesson in what was to be a long life of listening and dealing with hate because of my heritage. I have never denied my heritage and proudly embrace it without putting others down. Due to my mixed-marriage scenario - I have failed in the proper Jewish upbringing of my children, but make sure they know that they are fortunate to be born into such a special group of people.

    Here goes my explanation to him:

    There are so many special people in the world, born into different cultures, societies and locations. We are fortunate we were born in this country, have so many wonderful things and have the freedom to be and do what we want.

    There are places in the world where you are born into a situation where you can't be free. You are told how to behave and if you don't follow the rules - many bad things can happen to you. The kids in these places grow up with the only way they know and sometimes they are also brought up to hate other people. They are taught to hate other people because of the way they look, what they believe, or simply where they live. They can even hate little babies born into a different life than theirs, just because they are different.

    We are in a war and may be fighting wars in the world for the rest of our lives because other people hate so much. The United States wants all the other countries on the world to be nice and not hate, but that is impossible. We have soldiers in countries such as Iraq and Afghanistan so we can get the bad people that were in power and made all the rules to go away and let the people of the Country decide how they want to live their lives.

    The people that we helped remove from power aren't happy about us being involved and try to show that they are still in control by blowing things up and setting things on fire. They figure if they make everyone scared of them, they will get power back.
    So that is why soldiers, like Daddy spend time in Iraq - to help those little babies have a chance to grow up and not hate other people just because,

    As for nuclear weapons & weapons of mass destruction (one in the same for what you need to know), they are very bad things that can hurt a large group of people and maybe even make them die at one time. We (the US) don't want the people that hate to get a hold of these things because they will use them on little babies just because they are different. So when the US goes into war, it is to protect lots of people and make the world a better place. Israel, it is the land of our people. Many of the people that hate so much, hate everyone who is born in Israel, just because they are born there. If the bad people could, they would like to destroy all the people that live in Israel - just because they hate. The US and Israel are friends and we try and protect them because it is a small country and they are a special people and live in a place that is special to lots of people.

    That is the world in a nutshell son, be proud of who you are!
