All children should have a peaceful upbringing and the opportunity to pursue a meaningful life. But today, radical regimes and organizations systematically indoctrinate the next generation of kids to embrace violence and hatred.
This radicalization is happening at home, in the United States. Extremists use new methods, such as social media, to reach a broader audience and lure Western teenagers into joining terrorist organizations.
