We Remember

“The Survivor Tree, an American Elm, bore witness to the violence of April 19, 1995, and withstood the full force of the attack. Years later, it continues to stand as a living symbol of resilience. The circular promontory surrounding the tree offers a place for gathering and viewing the Memorial.”

Such a wonderful memorial. It is such a beautiful and fitting tribute. We first saw it with someone who was one of the first responders that day which made an even deeper impression on me.

Thank you for the reminder. I was deeply moved by the memorial when we visited. I continue to encourage everyone to check it out if they find themselves in OKC.

I remember when this happened. I remember looking through a magazine with my friends, and seeing the picture of the fire fighter holding the baby. I cried. I didn't understand everything, but I think that's the first time I realized what a tragedy was.
