  • OKC Murrah Federal building bombing

    24 years ago today one of the worst acts of domestic terrorism happened right here in Oklahoma. I was just 20 years old and still in college, I was studying for a college exam that morning in Minco, Oklahoma about 40 miles away and felt my house shake and heard my windows rattle from that blast. The wreckage was something to see first hand and is something I will never forget as long as I live. There is a really nice memorial there now and it worth going to see.

    Here's a wiki article about the bombing if anyone would like to read.

      Thank you Josh. Sadly, domestic incidents are so many, anniversaries of many past are forgotten.

      I might be off on the date, I recall 1969 being the beginning of terrorism directed at the United States with a plane hijacking, making 2019 the 40th anniversary of US terrorism. Googling it I came up with the following link, tracing terror back to the 1700's with early settlers feuding with the Lenape Indians.

      Being Easter, we think of Jesus dying on the cross for our many sins can mankind commit before the deals off with God?
