It's Been 11 Years

Today started very abruptly for me.  Part of the abruptness was brought on by a head cold and  sore throat.  The rest of the abruptness was brought on by the fact that today is September 11, 2012.  After reading through the Facebook posts and the obligatory "Where were you 11 years ago" 's, I came to a shocking realization.  My entire adult life has been spent at war.  Think about that statement for just a minute.  I don't want to discuss why, when, or how; I just want to think about the implications of being in a war for that long.
