Remembering 4-19-1995 ~like it was yesterday ♥
April 19, 1995 . The day that forever changed Oklahoma. We became a ball of fear, caution and grief. But at the same time we turned to each other for comfort. We leaned more on our faith. Hugged our children tighter. Loved our neighbors more. Oklahoma was on display for the world. That same world embraced us and became a smaller place. We became stronger.
The Survivor Tree~ a 90-year-old American Elm that was witness to the violence of April 19. “The spirit of this city and this nation will not be defeated; our deeply rooted faith sustains us.”
May we never forget ♥
Our hearts and minds take us right back to that horrific day! It was one of those times that we indeed came together as a nation to mourn and support. Our prayers go out to all the families who lost loved ones – they are forever hurting over this tragedy.
I’ve been there a few times… profoundly moving…
That it is. We were there today.
I can’t believe it’s been that long… I remember sitting in my college apartment with my roommates, staring in disbelief at the television. I’ve never been, but if I ever make it out that way, I’ll be sure to pay my respects.
It is sacred ground. I hope that you are able to pay your respects there one day. It is heartbreaking and precious. And I agree….I cannot believe how long it’s been….as I can recall just about every moment of panic from that day. ♥
A very nice post. All we can do is hold each other and cry sometimes. So much has happen in this world………..
A lot of reflection and heartache… that’s for certain. But we must still find good ….and help others along the way. ♥
