Explaining Terrorism to Children


This week we all witnessed the worst terrorist event in the nation since September, 2001.
Photos of the victims showed that the local community was clearly one of immigrants and children of immigrants. It’s appropriate then to listen to the sage advice from another immigrant, Dr. Manny Alvarez, who has been active as a volunteer for autism and Alzheimer’s and professionally has been noted for his OB-GYN work in drastically reducing the rate of early-term deliveries.
Dr. Alvarez I’m sure has great empathy for the San Bernardino victims and their children in that his own childhood included a birth in Batista’s Cuba and being taken in by an American foster family while he waited five long years for his father to be released from one of Castro’s prisons.
