Oklahoma City Bombing

Updated on March 9, 2012

April 19, 2010 is a day we will all look back to remember what happened 15 years ago in the bombing that took place in Oklahome City. God Bless all the families that were affected by the events that happened that day.

Many people will be gathered today in Oklahoma City to attend ceremonies that take the time out to remember the lives that were lost in the Oklahoma City Bombing that happened 15 years ago today.

On April 19, 1995 what seem to have started out to be a beautiful day, suddenly turned into one of the worst days that our country will always remember. This is the day that 600 people were injured and 168 lives were lost at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building located in Oklahoma City. These innocent lives were taken from us simply from an explosion caused by a bomb exploding in a Ryder truck that was located near the building, causing part of the building to shred.

Two men were taken in and trialed for these very horrible terrorists attacks. They were Timothy McVeigh and co-conspiratator Terry Nichols. As it stands Terry Nichols is still riding out his sentence as he was trialed and sentenced to life in rison without the chance of parole. His statement claimed that although he knew him and Timothy had planned the bombing he never though Timothy would actually go through with the bombing. At the time of the bombing he was at home with his family. As for Timothy McVeigh, he went down wanting people to now what he had done as though he was proud of himself for this horrible event. In 1997 a jury convicted him and sentenced him to death. He told everyone that he would always be one person that everyone remembered and he was right. To this day we all remember him and what he done to our nation. On June 10, 2001 Timothy McVeigh was led to an execution chamber where he made sure to make eye contact with the people there to watch him die. At the age of 33, Timothy McVeigh died from lethal injection at 7:14 am. The only thing he left behind was no final statement but a hand written poem of invictus. He also left behind so many hurt people. As stated this will be a day that we will all remember for the rest of our lives.

With my final statement I would like to give my sympathy to all those lost souls and family members of the ones lost in this tragic event. God Bless you all and you will all forever be remembered in our hearts!
