Oklahoma City National Memorial

by Karen

We come here to remember Those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.

When we were in Oklahoma City last Friday, we spent time at the national memorial that honors the victims, survivors, rescuers, and all who were changed forever on April 19, 1995 due the act of terrorism simply known as the Oklahoma City Bombing. My words would not adequately describe the memorial so I’m not even going to try. Below are some pictures I took and even though they hardly capture the impact, I hope they give you an idea of the memorial. The bombing and subsequent rescue effort is part of the history of our country and thankfully will not be forgotten.
