I Am The Son of A Terrorist. Here’s How I Chose Peace.

The Logical Indian

July 1st, 2015

If you’re raised on dogma and hate, can you choose a different path?

Groomed for terror, Zak Ebrahim chose a different life. The author of The Terrorist’s Son, he hopes his story will inspire others to reject a path of violence. Zak Ebrahim was just seven years old when his father helped plan the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Zak Ebrahim kept his family history a secret as they moved through a long succession of towns. In 2010, he realized his experience as a terrorist’s son not only gave him a unique perspective, but also a unique chance to show that if he could escape a violent heritage, anyone could. As he told Truthdig.com, “We must embrace tolerance and nonviolence. Who knows this better than the son of a terrorist?”

His story is shocking, powerful, and ultimately, inspiring.
