Another terrorist attack.
People are dead in Egypt. Lebanon. Iraq. And now Paris.
People are afraid all over the world. I am afraid. Where and when will the next attack occur?
Rationally there’s no reason a terrorist would target me. I’m a nobody. Killing me would not make sense.
But terrorism is so insidious because it doesn’t make sense. Terrorists target people on vacation. Out for the evening. Shopping for food for their family.
I know today there are many who are calling to fight back, to wage war, to kill the enemy. Others are calling for world peace.
Not here please. This is a place to sit with the hurt felt for those who have suffered and lost.
This is a place to feel the fear.
