The American Terrorists

We’ve endured much talk about terrorists in America during the past nine years. Politicians protect us from terrorists by telling us the color of the day. Removing our shoes before boarding an airplane will protect us from terrorists. Nastiness and religious intolerance will protect us from terrorists. People with “funny” names are terrorists. We can recognize terrorists just by looking at them. Believe it or not, the idiot “security chief” at my son’s high school told me that I wasn’t allowed to take a picture of the building because “There are a lot of terrorists around here you know.” This is what happens when we prize ignorance in our society. Sadly, terrorists are real. They surround us everywhere, every day.
