Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on emergency management and homeland security. The research deals with their life history and how they turned out to be damage inflicting people, live right next to us. With all the research and findings, the research paper is aimed at proving the fact that homegrown terrorism is evolving as every day goes by and its links to lone extremism are getting stronger day by day. By this research, it can be proved that the heartland is under immense threat from terrorists and terrorist groups and to show that people have to be more cautious about even their surroundings with lone extremists rising from every corner of the streets these days.
The purpose of this research is to force people not only to think about other countries or other terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda when the word terrorism is spelt out, it could also be a person who is living right next to you. Anyone living in your neighborhood could turn out to be a terrorist who could inflict sufferings to other people. The purpose is also targeted at all commoners living in this country and it does not divulge into topics that bring out the diversities in people. It only concentrates on the possible facets that a human could take for the purpose of living and what are the possible results for each of these facets.
The paper also deals about the facts that separate a lone extremist from a terrorist group. Though the paper defines as both of them to be people who inflict damage on others, it aims at bringing out the basic differences on what creates a lone extremist and a group and what are the precautions that heartland people have to take care of in order to identify the lone extremists at the root stage itself. The paper also aims at bringing out how horrific and damage causing each act of terrorism could result in.
With more detailed research, the purpose of the paper has broadened to include topics such as the acts performed by the US government, like the war of Iraq and its implications on how it is leading more and more people to join the act of terrorism. With US proceeding its way into resolving conflicts among eastern people, this hasn’t gone well with the natives of the east. This has led terrorist groups like al-Qaeda and Taliban to inject more number of people into their group to inflict damage not only to US, but to other countries that support the cause of US. So, it basically has moved out from a nation based activity to an internationally warned activity. All these facts and information have increased the purpose of the paper to include all possible faces of causes that lead to the act of terrorism.

But the time has come to bring the topic into limelight ad reveal its identity to the common man.
