As a child, history felt so far away. I remember learning about the MLK assassination in elementary school. It was history. Except... Disadvantaged city kids were bussed to my school, and the year was probably 1972 -- only 4 years after the assassination. I think about that with the Civil war, too. It really wasn't that long ago, historically speaking. Only a hundred or so years before my birth. That's a blink of an eye.
