When people from Scranton refer to "the city," such as when they
say, "I'm going to the city this weekend," or "I went
to the city for dinner and a show," they usually are talking about
New York City. New York is OUR city, the place we visit when we need a
dose of art, culture, baseball or the incredible diversity only NYC can
offer. No offense, Philadelphia - we love you, too, but New York holds
a special place in many of our hearts.
When something bad happens in New York, it does not feel like it happened
in a far away place. Rather, it feels like it happened in our own backyard.
Maybe that is why news about the failed car bombing in Times Square this
past weekend aroused such feelings of anger, anxiety and upset here at
home. News of terrorist attacks anywhere shock and sadden us, but news
of terrorism in NYC stops us in our tracks.
Thankfully, no one was hurt. I hope the police, FBI and other law enforcement
piece together the evidence and find the responsible party quickly and
without further incident. I wish no one from Scranton, NYC or anywhere
else ever had to deal with situations like this. Unfortunately, in our
world, people hurt other people all too often.
Getting hurt and recovering from injuries is always hard. Getting hurt
and recovering from injuries because someone meant to hurt you, or even
because they neglected to take common sense precautions to avoid doing
so, is somehow harder.
