The scourge of terrorism is a tough one to bleed out of society. Growing up in the late 20th and early 21st century means that you have a better understanding of terrorism than most other generations. Whether you have lost someone to terror or lost some of your soul, it affected us all.
No one will ever forget 9/11 and what happened that day in 2001. There have been other events as well and we have seen all sorts of problems originate from these horrific attacks. Terrorism is an incredible tactic, particularly against America. It not only incites fear and panic in us but it also turns us against our neighbors. It forces us to second guess those around us that we don’t understand.
Whether we are talking about the rash of active shootings or radicalized Muslim terror, its all ugly and it all needs a home somewhere else. For the most part we have had to deal with active shooters above all and it calls into question what might be coming next.
We are heading into the most holy part of the year and that often has an affect on people. It could be a good affect that forces people to consider love and peace or it could be something that riles up radical theologians of all any background and faith.
Practice situational awareness and pay close attention when you are out and about. We have to be very careful of those around us in public.
Be sure that you are prepared to stay indoors for days or weeks at a time. We don’t know what the next terror attack could be but you want to have sufficient resources to weather the storm.
Above all, be a good neighbor and do everything you can to help those in need. Life is tough and the vast majority of us are not terrorists.
