Meanwhile, private security guards prowl the halls of La Jolla Country Day. Students have been instructed how to evacuate the building during a bomb threat, and a psychologist has counseled Rogers' pupils. Officials held a "terrorism awareness" briefing for faculty members. And 21 fourth-graders anxiously await the return of their beloved Mrs. Rogers. "What Americans need to understand is that the way to deal with terrorism is not to isolate the victim but to stand together," observes San Diego Congressman Bill Lowery, Rogers' most vocal supporter. "((The terrorists')) weapon is fear. Most Americans realize that, and I hope the parents and the administration at La Jolla Country Day realize it."
