Terrorism, what is it? The unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians. At least that’s what Oxford Dictionary says.
Although it might have not happened to you but around the world thousands of people have their homes destroyed, lost their families and their lives, just because of terrorist attacks.
Terrorist attacks are not new though, there has been attacks that date back to the 1st century. People who are not affected don't really care about it, but what if it was you facing these attacks? People do not understand how much stress the victims go through.
Let me name two examples, the November Paris 2015 attack, which may be surprising, but I was in Paris about five days before this happened. This attack killed at least 130 people and wounded many. The attackers, armed with assault rifles and explosives, targeted six locations across Paris. Blessed be the families of those who died in this attack and may the people who passed away rest in peace.
Another example is the New York 9/11 attack which is the most fatal attack. In the morning of September 11, attackers of the Islamic terrorist group Al-Qaeda bombed the twin towers. About 2,900 people died in this attack. Again I feel so sorry for all the people who lost their lives, may their families be blessed, and their souls rest in peace.
Robert Verkaik has written an article on ‘Why it’s becoming impossible to stop the terrorists?’, and I agree with that. I understand that it's almost impossible to change someone’s mind after they get it fixed on something, but still, I want to do something to stop terrorism, may be by spreading awareness about it.
But how should I do that?
If you care about it and want to help me spread awareness, please help me. And also share this with others because, the more the people understand, the more there will be to help.
