Terrorist attacks in Western countries like France and the United States are a very recent phenomenon. Here in the West, we’re still adjusting to the fact that terrorism has become part of our experience, too. It’s no longer something that only happens in far-away places that we’ve never heard of, or know very little about. As we’re managing our own anxiety about terrorist attacks, we’re also having to learn how to discuss war and terrorism with our children.
