It is easy for most of us to recall or know about the terrorist attack on September 11th, 2001.  I bring that up because another terrorist attack occurred in Manhattan right by the World Trade Center.  It was on Tuesday, October 31st, better known as Halloween, when a man hit and killed eight people with a rental truck.  The terrorist was said to be 29-year-old Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov from Uzbekistan.

Saipov was driving a rental truck from the Home Depot and began hitting pedestrians, cyclists, and eventually a school bus.  He was said to be yelling, “Allahu Akbar” and authorities have confirmed his incident to be terrorism in the name of ISIS.  After crashing into a school bus, he then exited the truck and was shot in the abdomen by an officer.  Five of the victims were from Argentina, one Belgian mother, and two American men.  Eleven people were injured and eight people lost their lives because a sick, selfish person committed such a terrible crime.
