What do the Accused Boston Marathon Bombers have in common with a Sri Lankan teenager who wanted to be a nun, a Tunisian honors student, and a Norwegian who wanted to be a physician? 

Preventing “home grown” terrorism starts with understanding why and how young people all over the world are becoming radicalized, recruited, and convinced that the best way to a meaningful life is through violence.

Terrorism expert Alice LoCicero has spent years researching this phenomenon, spending time with survivors of horrific terrorist attacks providing comfort and guidance, and getting inside the minds of these radicals.  She talked about the importance of good parenting, but also that it takes a village to raise a child.  As well, more people are killed in traffic accidents in the United States than by terrorism, so although we need to keep a watchful eye on why recruiters are targeting our children, we also need to remain calm and keep things in perspective.  Her book, “Why Good Kids Turn Into Deadly Terrorists”, helps parents, educators and law enforcement understand the motives and tools used to turn these kids against society, and work towards eradicating terrorism.
