Sixteen years ago today I remember exactly where I was and what I was doing at 9:02am. I was working as a nurse in a hospital and was caring for the patients that I had that day. The tv's were on in most rooms and the news of the OKC Alfred P. Murrah Building being targeted by a bomb was coming across the news. It was a sad day for our state as well as our nation.
The massive explosion caused 168 people to be killed including 19 children. Over 800 others were injured. What causes someone to do something so horrendous. So many lives were effected by this senseless act.
I know as long as this earth exists there will be those who decide to choose a path that is destructive but I also know that there are many more that choose the path of caring and kindness and isn't that a much nicer path to be on!
