Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Man Planned To Drive U-Haul Truck Into Crowd in National Harbor In The Name of Islam, Feds Say

Recommended Posts

By Mary Margaret Olohan -



The FBI arrested a man in March who allegedly planned to commit an act of terrorism by driving a U-Haul truck into a crowd in National Harbor, Maryland.

Computer expert Rondell Henry, 28, of Germantown, Maryland, quit his job on March 26 with the intent to commit an attack inspired by Islamic State propaganda, according to Department of Justice Monday.

Henry stole a U-Haul truck and then drove around Washington, D.C., looking for a place with plenty of pedestrians, authorities say. He allegedly drove to Dulles International Airport in Virginia and contemplated driving the truck into “disbelievers” there, ABC News reported. However, authorities say he decided against this and drove to National Harbor instead.

Henry told authorities that upon arrival in National Harbor he realized that it was too early in the morning and chose to wait until larger crowds arrived.

Henry parked the car in National Harbor and hid overnight in a boat, according to authorities. Meanwhile, after U-Haul reported the stolen vehicle, the FBI discovered the U-Haul and checked surveillance cameras. They discovered Henry who admitted to stealing the truck and his desire to carry out the attacks out of “hatred” for anyone who was not Muslim.

“I was just going to keep driving and driving. I wasn’t going to stop,” Henry told investigators, according to the Justice Department.

Members of his family reported him missing on March 26 and stated they were concerned for his emotional well-being, authorities say.

“He was a computer engineer by trade, and knew nothing of explosives or firearms. But he knew how to drive, and he also knew of the terrorist truck attack in Nice, France. So the defendant decided to use what was readily at his disposal and conduct a vehicular attack on a crowd of innocents,” the federal prosecutors said in court documents.

Henry will appear in court for a detention hearing Tuesday and is being held without bail.

“We continue to gather evidence, as well as review evidence already obtained as part of this ongoing investigation,” U.S. Attorney for Maryland Robert Hur said in a statement.
