Fifteen years ago today, a twenty-six year old United States citizen and former US Army veteran detonated a 4,800 pound homemade bomb in the heart of my state capitol. 168 people were killed in the blast, including 19 children under the age of 6. More than 680 people were injured. Today we remember this tragedy, mourn the lives which were lost before their time, and give thanks for those who responded to others in need during an unthinkably tragic time.
… dedicated to educating visitors about the impact of violence, informing about events surrounding the bombing, and inspiring hope and healing through lessons learned by those affected.
On their website, you and your students can read as well as watch videos about the “lessons learned” from this tragic chapter of Oklahoma and United States history. A virtual tour of the museum is available. Let us never forget those who were killed.
