…life goes on.
It was only on reading the NY Times headlines this morning that I learned of the explosion that took place last night 125 blocks south of here (here being my home in Harlem).
Thankfully, no grievous physical injuries or loss of life. It will take some time to assess the unseen injuries caused by this heinous act.
Thankfully, New York City’s first responders did their jobs quickly, efficiently, professionally.
Thankfully, ordinary people did their best to help with courage and compassion.
The case is under investigation. The available information is a loop of what is already known and has been reported. No new developments.
Also no hysteria. No mass exodus over the bridges and through the tunnels. By and large, it’s a typical, late-summer Sunday in Manhattan.
Security is an internal State.
