My parents and my wife and I went to Oklahoma City for the weekend for my cousin Tim’s wedding. More on the wedding later, but I knew that if we were going to go to Oklahoma City that we should really try and visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial, which is where the following took place:
On the morning of April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh parked a rented Ryder truck with explosives in front of the complex and, at 9:02am, a massive explosion occurred which sheared the entire north side of the building, killing 168 people.
I hate taking credit for wanting to go see a memorial, but it was really special, and I think that everyone could really appreciate what this meant.
This is the front of the Memorial, the time behind this reads 9:01. It’s strange, this picture was not altered, and I can’t explain why there’s so much white light behind the beginning of the memorial. Quite honestly, I think it looks amazing.
