Over the Memorial Day weekend DR, the kids and I spent the weekend in Oklahoma City with family. (More posts on that later!!) Yesterday before we started the 4 1/2 hour drive home we stopped by the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum. I'd first visited the memorial 9 years ago and it was just as touching now as it was before.
168 chairs represent the victims who lost their lives on April 19, 1995
at 9:02 a.m. the blast occurred
part of the surviving wall of the Murrah Building

"We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity."
