On 19 April 1995, I was living in Houston at the time, going to school to learn computer skills and working part time. It was a short day for me, so I was on my way home around 1:00pm. I turned on my radio to catch Rush, and heard instead about the bombing in Oklahoma City. No one knew much at that time, speculation was high that it was some Islamic terror group. I arrived home and immediately turned on the television, where I sat, in total disbelief until it was time to pick up my granddaughter from daycare. It was even more of a shock to find out one of “our own” could even conceive of such an act.
The feelings of that day are burned into my heart and mind.
May the Good Lord grant us all peace.
