Today is a day of remembrance and introspection. We remember the 168 lives lost in the Murrah Federal Building during the Oklahoma City Bombing. My son was three years old and attended day care in a high rise office building in downtown Dallas. My daughter would be born four months later, in August. Airedale Mattie Rae and Welshie Blue Monster Max lived with us in our home in the White Rock Lake area of Dallas.
We may have lived in Dallas, but our hearts broke with Oklahoma that morning. This dark day in downtown Oklahoma city changed the lives of Oklahomans - of all of America - forever.
So, today we will remember all those who have gone before. Thank you for your friendship, your readership, your support.
