Terrorist Attacks Not Far from Home
By: Allison Varah
Terrorist attacks are a world away for many, but our foreign exchange student Tim
Schlagheck didn’t feel that way when he first heard about the attack in Brussels. One of
his first thoughts was for his Dad’s safety, as he commutes from his home to Brussels.
When Tim spoke with his dad through text, his dad said he had heard the bombs and
wasn’t sure what they were, but shortly after read about them and knew that was what he
had heard. “It can happen anywhere,” Tim expressed after this happened so close to his
home. No one he knows was hurt, but it definitely leaves one with a feeling of unease.
When asked if he would feel safe taking transportation in the area again he said, “You
always have that thought of what could happen? I’m not saying I won’t fly again, or
subway, but it’s definitely not the same as before. Nothing is the same as before.”
We are glad to hear Tim’s family is safe and hope for their continued safety in the future.
