BOSTON (CBS) – There were multiple terrorist attacks over the weekend, the most damaging an explosion in New York City that resulted in twenty-nine people being injured. Across the country, a man dressed as a security guard stabbed nine people at a Minnesota mall, after reportedly asking one of the victims if they were Muslim and shouting about “Allah”. There was also an explosion in New Jersey meant to injure runners and spectators at a charity run, but luckily the race was delayed and nobody was hurt by that device. What was your reaction to the news of the three attacks over the weekend? Is using the word “terrorism” really an important part of keeping our nation safe?
