The reason why we decided to do this is because children's awareness of terrorism has grown due to widespread reports and discussion of terrorist events in the media and around us. Both direct and indirect exposures can be traumatic to children. Children are more vulnerable to the impact of shocking world events of Terrorism who is growing by day in the world, and making the children's his casualties. Ahmed, 15 (fifteen years old) from Gaza who send us his drawing it is our motivation to start this project.
As our first step is to open discussion topics related to the impact of terrorism and disaster on children, the idea of terrorism with the children's and see their answers, experiences, thoughts or ideas. We encourage everyone to send us any kind of media or text done by children on terrorism topic. We will reveal all the images or written data by name or anonymously depends on the request of the sender. (we promise that we will honor every request)
For all of us to be able to help our children, we think it is important to engage this and hopefully with help from other NGO's and children working groups to address the issue and find solutions.

Research findings show that many children can be strongly affected by terrorist attacks. In a national sample of adults surveyed three to five days after the September 11th attacks, 35% of parents reported that their children had at least one stress symptom. - www.ptsd.va.gov
