As the country grapples with yet another act of terrorism, many people ask again: “How could this happen?” Eight people were killed last night when Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov plowed into a bike path with a rented Home Depot truck. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says the suspect was radicalized domestically. As more information trickles in, many in the Christian community are lifting their hearts in prayer.
Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference After hearing of the terror attack in New York, I once again returned to the all too familiar place of prayer, mourning and heartbreak for all the lives that have been lost to yet another act of senseless violence. We pray for the family members and loved ones of the victims and we pray also for the city of New York that has once again been the target of terror. We are all tired of reading the headlines of more innocent people being killed. We all long for the day when civilians are no longer targeted by lone wolves roaming our streets. But we must also remember that a lone wolf is no match for the power of our unity and the foundations of our shared values. CONTINUE
