Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial
On Sunday morning, we went to the Oklahoma City Memorial which was 8 blocks from our hotel. Julie and I commented on the differences between this site and its future compared to the World Trade Center in New York which is being rebuilt. It highlights a cultural and political shift of which we are not fond. As a country, we are more interested in assuring that commerce is uninterrupted and making a bold statement to wacko foreign terrorists than to memorialize and respect the Americans that were murdered at this site. At least OKC seems to have their priorities in order in respecting the fallen.
