All it takes is one person.

When the news broke yesterday, I hoped it wouldn’t be linked to terrorism. And so far it looks like it isn’t, thankfully.

But that doesn’t change the fact that ten people lost their lives because of one man’s actions.

Yesterday’s attack — and, terrorism or not, it was an attack on our city — is an example of how easily one person can cause so much damage with so little effort.

It’s happened earlier this month in Germany, last October in NYC, and I can’t forget the 2016 holiday market attack in Berlin. I fear we’ll see more incidents like it in the future.

Beyond following the news, I didn’t have much of a reaction to yesterday’s incident. But now that the names of the deceased are coming out, I’m starting to feel it.
