Global Terrorism Is Terrifying. Here’s Why It Makes It More Important Than Ever To Travel
I WOKE UP MARCH 22 to the news that Brussels just suffered a massive terrorist attack, leaving upwards of 40 people dead and 200 people injured. I felt a piercing sadness, I was horrified, and yet I wasn’t shocked. I wasn’t shocked because this devastating news comes just over three months after the world was rocked by ghastly ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris, Beirut, and Baghdad last November, followed by another attack in San Bernardino, California, in December and a suicide bombing in Indonesia’s capital in January. The world is in a state of turmoil and tragedy, and people are living — understandably so — in a perpetual state of fear.
