I’ve asked this question far too many times now.
I asked why when people were killed in Nice, Belgium , Berlin , Barcelona and Paris .
I asked why when it happened twice in London .
I didn’t think that I would need to ask why in New York City .
But it seems as though I have to .
On Halloween afternoon , that’s October 31st to the rest of the world , a rented truck with a logo from the lumber and other goods store, Home Depot, drove down a street on the city’s very busy West Side Highway .
The street he drove down, West Street , is mainly a bike and pedestrian only street.
According to witnesses, he was going the wrong way from Houston to Chambers Street .
If you know New York City , you know this is about 20 or so long blocks.
This was NO accident that the driver was going the wrong way and very fast.
He was going out of his way to cause as much damage as possible.
In the end, eight people were killed and as of now 15 people were taken to hospitals .
Ironically , this bike path is in the shadow of the Freedom Tower, also know as One Observatory Tower.
It replaced the fallen Twin Towers of the World Trade Center .
As with the other cities, a truck has suddenly become “The weapon of choice” to create as much death and destruction as possible .
The people who were killed were from Argentina and Belgium just biking on a path that a lot of New Yorkers use every day.
Among the injured were two children on a school bus.
Besides ramming the truck into pedestrians and bicyclists , he also hit a school bus.
Unlike the others who carried out these attacks in the name of “religion “, the person who did this is in a New York City hospital.
As of right now, they don’t have a reason why he chose this particular street in New York City or why the city was a target again .
I don’t care what his reason was or why this seems to keep happening everywhere now.
I’ve gotten tired of asking why.
