Americans Fighting for Isis

question-yikA5pBiESo, a couple of us teachers were sitting around contemplating the state of affairs of the world and the topic of Americans fighting for Isis came up. What are your thoughts on this topic. I’m of the mind that “a person who stands for nothing will fall for anything” (Alexander Hamilton). Some of our youth want badly to take part in a passionate cause, regardless of the cost or the focus, and are attracted to the danger and the mystique. Or maybe they are bored? Seek travel? What say you?
