I was once a primary school teacher on a remote island of Indonesia. Ten years before I arrived, there was a riot between Muslims and Christians, with thousands of casualties. After the riot, the government segregated the Muslim villages from the Christian villages. I happened to be deployed to a Muslim village.
One afternoon, when there was talk of a possible riot, my students ran to my house in panic and told me: "Ma'am, please be careful of Christians! They will burn down our houses!" When I told them that the riot was far away, they replied that "the riot will fly here!"
