Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum

We left Branson this morning about 8:30 and headed to Oklahoma.

We stopped to visit the Memorial in honor of the people who lost their lives in the bombing of the Federal Building April 19th 2005.DSC_0083

If you visit Oklahoma City, you must take the time to see the National Memorial.  I can’t begin to explain how something so tragic has been translated into something so beautiful. My visit was a life altering experience.

The Reflection Pool and behind the pool is one of the gates of time. They mark the time of the Bombing. 9:01am.  Just to the right of the pool are the chairs.

There are 168 Chairs, one for every person that lost their lives. 

The Museum takes you on a chronological guided tour of the day of the bombing and the weeks and years that followed.

Thank you for the history update. Glad to hear the weather is changing in your favor. We had fog and rain yesterday, most of the snow is gone. Dyanne went home Saturday afternoon. Nice to have our space back. Love you
