I was a junior in high school when out of nowhere a lunatic (Timothy McVeigh, an Army veteran) bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown OKC. Remember David Koresh the Branch Davidian cult leader from Waco, Texas, that held his followers captive for 51 days? You know how that ended…well, McVeigh bombed the OKC federal building as revenge on the federal government for that raid. The OKC bombing remains the largest domestic terrorist attack on US soil.
Today, fifteen years later, my thoughts trail back to that day when my fellow Okies lost their lives and my heart goes out to the loved ones.
