Oklahoma City Bombing, 20 Years On

On April 19, 1995, a truck-bomb explosion outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, left 168 people dead and hundreds more injured. The blast was set off by anti-government militant Timothy McVeigh, who in 2001 was executed for his crimes. His co-conspirator Terry Nichols received life in prison. Until September 11, 2001, the Oklahoma City bombing was the worst terrorist attack to take place on U.S. soil. (From History.com)

In memory of those who perished, in honor of those who live on and may it be a reminder to be vigilant and to never let such things happen again. Grace and peace to everyone today in Oklahoma City, OK.
