Here in America, I think sometimes we have a tendency to not know what life is like in other parts of the world. Especially war-torn countries in the Middle East. Of course, we have soldiers who have bravely fought in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but for your everyday citizen, we have life pretty good.

So, what would life be like if suddenly things changed and we went from a land of freedom and no war to suddenly in the middle of a war on our own soil? The video below poses that very question and shows how quickly things can change with a glimpse at one second of a day over the course of a year.

This will send chills down your spine.
