The T Word

Refuse to be terrorised.

A criminal does not become a terrorist because of which country they came from, because they choose to attack aeroplanes, because they are religiously or politically motivated or because they use bombs.  They become a terrorist because we respond with fear and define them as such.  Well, we can choose not to do that.

Everyone should remember that the perpetrators of the recent cargo plane bombing, the Times Square bombing, the underpants bombing, the liquid bomb plots, the 2007 London and Glasgow attacks and countless others (at least in the "Western world") did not succeed.
