Are foreign wars distracting us from what's happening at home? For the last month, the Israel-Hamas war has dominated the headlines. Stories of horrific tragedies, mounting conflict, and looming international war have absorbed much of the national conversation since the first Hamas attack on October 7th, and for good reason.
