We rarely hear from victims of a terror attack, because most victims do not survive. Kay Wilson did.
Kay Wilson endured the unendurable and overcame what was almost impossible to overcome. Her book, “The Rage Less Traveled” is a memoir of how she survived a brutal machete attack by two Palestinian terrorists, and her ordeal afterwards, trying desperately to cope with her debilitating pain, grief, PTSD and the survivors guilt that ensued and tortured her.
This book is not political. It's personal. It's sad, it's painful, it's happy and it's a must read because normally when we hear of a terror attack, we are upset, angry and sad, but we turn off the news, and go about our business. Kay couldn't go about her business after the attack. Her life changed forever and it's necessary for us to know the magnitude of these attacks and how it affects everyone involved.
Kay has embraced her Palestinian and Muslims friends since the attack. But it is important to know, as stated at the end of the book. “under Palestinian Authority law, these two murders, and other incarcerated Palestinian terrorists receive financial awards for their crimes. To date, the two men who macheted Kay and Kristine have received more than $70,000 each and will soon each receive $3,410 dollars per month for the rest of their lives.”
