R*I*P in OKC

How The West Was Fun

After pulling into Oklahoma City for the night, we met up with Carrie and her husband, Ken, for dinner and some sightseeing.

The first place we saw was the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial. It was quite an experience and deserves its own page.

Of course, you remember that the bombing in 1995 was orchestrated by Timothy McVeigh and co-conspirator Terry Nichols, in part to avenge the government assault on extremists in Waco, TX two years prior. The bomb decimated the building, destroying the entire front, while flattening cars and damaging many surrounding buildings.

168 people lost their lives including 19 children.

The people of Oklahoma City have never forgotten and hold an annual remembrance.

Here’s a photo tour of this magnificent memorial:

Rest In Peace….
