We are making the best of our short time to visit Oklahoma City. They are predicting a mix of snow/rain this weekend, so we are heading out in the morning. We did manage to get in 4 geocaches and a visit to the Oklahoma City National Memorial.
This is a very moving memorial to those who were killed on April 19, 1995. They were killed when Timothy McVeigh detonated a bomb in front of the Alfred Murrah Office Building. The building housed offices for several government agencies and a day care facility for their children. The bomb exploded at 9:02 a.m. and the outdoor memorial features two walls at the ends of a reflecting pool. The walls are labeled 9:01 and 9:03, enclosing the tragic moment. In several photos I am adding, you will see 168 chairs, one for each victim including smaller ones for the children.
One of the geocaches near the memorial was a statue called "Jesus Weeping". Another one was of a huge coin with an eagle. The view of the memorial from there was awesome. It is a very sad memorial to visit and our heart goes out to all the victims and their families. More later from somewhere in Arkansas.
