On December 11, 2017, an explosion made its way into the headlines and into our minds. A little before 7:30 a.m., a Banladeshi man from Brooklyn, Akayed Ullah, detonated a homemade pipe bomb in the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York City. The suicide bomber was severely injured and transported to a hospital for treatment.

Upon further investigation, it was found that the explosive went off earlier than planned in the terrorist attack. According to authorities, the attack was not as successful as it could have been, having only injured 3 people. The noise of the explosion alerted those nearby and caused panic throughout not only the subway systems where it happened, but people who were simply living their day to day lives.

According to CNN, “Ullah told investigators that he carried out the attack because of recent Israeli actions in Gaza, a law enforcement source said.”

Recently, the numbers of terrorist attacks have escalated to a point where people are starting to be afraid of going out and living their lives. Someone can not simply walk out of their house to go to a crowded area in New York without the fear that something might happen to them. It is important now than ever, during the holiday season where people accumulate in pointed areas, that we put attention on the threats that are constantly breathing down our necks. This is something that is so important because it concerns the lives of innocent people who do not deserve to die or suffer because someone just wants to be listened to.
