  •  Note to 'grown-ups': (5+ / 0-)

    "Terror" and "Terrorism" are not magic words.  

    Proclaiming these words will not make the scary things disappear (in fact, it often seems to do the opposite).

    Shouting these words does not prove your personal bravery or seriousness (in fact, it often seems to do the opposite).

    Using these particular words does not impart any special information or deeper understanding about the situation (in fact, it often seems to do the opposite).

    Please fall out of love with these words.  You're not helping.
