Originally I was going to write about a terrorist,” Guyton said. “The more I wrote it, the more I realized it was a bit too heavy for me, especially since I was so emotionally, you know, involved in what these terrorists did. I couldn’t really find myself sympathizing with someone just yet because it was so fresh and raw and painful. So I decided what if it was something a bit more personal, something more people could relate to. He’s sort of a terrorist within his own family. I think that makes it more personal and I think even scarier.
