Oklahoma City Memorial-- A P Murrah Building

I am driving to LA... .and stopped off in Oklahoma City to see the memorial to the victims and survivors of the Oklahoma City bombing at the Alfred P Murrah Building.

It was a peaceful and thoughtful memorial. The design was selected from over 624 entries. There is a reflecting pond...and the field of chairs is based where the former Murrah building stood.

Each of the chairs represents a victim. There are 198 chairs.
There are 19 small chairs for the children. Each chair is bronze, set on a glass base... which is illuminated at night.
Each base is etched with the person's name.

There are Time Gates to the site. One gate has 9:01 and the other has 9:03. The second in between -- 9:02 was when the bomb went off.

The Time Gates represents life before the terrorist attack.. and the other gate represented life after... forever changed.

There are many aspects to this memorial... the Survivor Tree.. the building across the street heavily damaged... the pond, the fence, the museum, the Survivor's wall.. the corner of the Murrah Building... so much to see and ponder.

It was very moving... and I encourage every one to see it some day.

It is a strong and noble tribute to those that suffered and those that died.
