Back in December, I wrote a post on Safety in an Era of Terrorism , discussing how to think about safety and risk management when horrific and unpredictable acts of terrorism were striking major world capitols such as Paris and Istanbul. Unfortunately, the violence doesn t seem to be letting up any time soon. But lest we think it s a recent phenomenon, I would recommend the following article, titled Thirty Years On, written earlier this week after the bombings in Brussels. It was published in the newsletter of the European Tourism Association a group of people who have worked with thousands and thousands of travelers to Europe over the past several decades. They remind us that very sadly terrorist violence is not new and that we will, and should, carry on.
