Our hearts ache every time the peace and tranquility of our daily lives are shattered by extremist Islamic terrorists. When an atrocity hits London, Paris, or New York, the world listens. We band together, we cry together, and we unite in a promise to try to keep terror from ever again rearing its head in our backyards.
But these tragedies happen even more often than we realize. The horrors we suffer are only a shadow of what life is like in other parts of the world. In countries where Islamic militants live next door, terror is not just an unexpected interruption of peace—it is a threat that looms every day.
