Recent, indeed.  I've taken to comparing events in history to the life spans of people I've known, or who they knew, and it brings it into shocking relief for me.  WWI was a fact during the young adulthood of my grandparents, just 5 years before the births of my parents, one of whom is still alive.  In that context it seems like it was just yesterday.
