The TEDxExeter 2018 talk by Bonya Ahmed Simple narratives can be deadly: how I recovered from a terror attack - in now LIVE via the TEDx YouTube channel.

Bonya and her husband Avijit Roy were targeted by Islamist terrorists in an attack which left her gravely injured and Avijit dead. Seeking to understand why this happened, she realised the question she must ask is not "Why did this happen to me?" but "Why NOT me?"

In this deeply personal, powerful talk about her recovery and how we build a more peaceful world she urges us to reject the simple narratives offered by politicians and extremists alike, to grapple with complexity, and stay engaged.
