So on Thanksgiving Day, I remember and I am grateful. I am grateful for what I have learned about myself since the day I heard the diagnosis.

As the majority of the world mourns, suspicion permeates as to why some acts of atrocity, which occurred almost simultaneously as the attacks in Paris, aren't receiving the same collective grief that now cocoons France.

Never once in my life did I think I would hear an actual explosion, nor did I expect to be in walking distance of a terrorist attack. No one ever plans for these things, nor are you ever really prepared. My experience in Paris reshaped the way I look at studying abroad. In no way will it stop me from traveling, but it will make go about it in a different way.

A Chinese death has provoked a series of questions about how China will respond to the rise of ISIS. Since 2001 China has been fighting it's own "war on terror" domestically in the far western province of Xinjiang.

The Way Ahead for France, Europe and America

While the action in the Middle East should lead to both terror attacks and fears leveling off over time, an equally important part of the fight is within French borders. There is no justification in the world for terrorism. But if these areas are not given hope, some of its residents become tempted by radical Islam.

Aside from a fake Syrian passport, there is no evidence that the Paris attacks were masterminded or perpetrated by migrants. Even if evidence does emerge, the dividends of migration in Europe clearly and demonstrably will continue to outweigh the risks.
