Oklahoma City

On the way to Wichita today we stopped at the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial.

It was very well done. Janice cried through most of the tour and even I had a tear in my eye.

We were both on a chartered sailboat in Tahiti when it happened so we missed the tremendous news coverage of the event and didn’t feel the magnitude of the tragedy until today.

    Having been with you on that Tahitian charter, I remember feel weirdly out of touch watching the TV coverage of the one year memorial the following year- since we’d missed the tragedy.

    I was never really a fan of capital punishment until I realized what a relief it was to the families of the victims in the Murrah building that Timothy McVeigh was no longer on this earth.

    Also, a memorable photo was taken and published in the newspapers at that time of Aspen, a search and rescue golden retriever, showing him sitting next to his exhausted handler in Oklahoma City. It was easy to read into the expression on Aspen’s face.
