People (especially Americans) are getting too paranoid about terrorism in my opinion.
Don't let terrorism change your life, then the terrorists have accomplised a lot.
If people live every day in fear of terroism they have alredy stopped living.
As far as I know, no athlets have been subject to terroism in recent history. You might as well getting bombed working in an office building.
I don't worry about beeing subject to terroism. If it happns it hapens, but there's not much I can do to prevent it, so why worry about it all the time?
