The Proud Boys, a nationalist movement of mostly young white males is drawing new recruits every day from coast-to-coast.

A Terrorist Attack in Real America – New York Times

Disasters that strike close to home inevitably affect us differently from those we observe at a distance. I cross the bike path near the spot where the terrorist crashed his truck every day.
