In 1998, she was in her second grade, too young to understand the complexity of the term she read. Like every average student, unable to dissect the word or understand the etymology.

She must have seen it on the morning newspaper and when she saw her English teacher, she scribbled the wrong spelling that contained Ts, Rs, Is and Ms. The good teacher, corrected her spelling, made her pronounce it correctly and told her the meaning of it.

“I don’t think I will need or use this word”, she concluded. The teacher smiled at her innocence.

But she did, and so do all the kids in this world, since the beginning of their time.

The word was TERRORISM.
