Where were you when OKC happened?

I had slept over at my great aunt and woke up to it. It was aweful. I will never forget. My hearts go out for Boston now.

  • I don't recall for OKC. I woke up to 9/11, and I'll never forget that. The newscast was pointing out last night that America is better equipped to deal with these terrorist type things now, over ten years post 9/11. That might be true as far as having better trained professionals and CIA agents, but it's still freaking depressing.

  • I don't think anyone will remember it unless they lived here at the time. Nobody ever remembers things about OK LOL. Record breaking tornado wind speeds, worst act of domestic terrorism in history, whatev LOL. Not to make a joke out of it, but I just think people care more now than they did back then, and I think a lot of that has to do with 9/11. Also social media helps people give out support when stuff like this happens.

    I was at home, just horrified.

  • I don't remember specifically but based on the date and time I would have been in school. I was a freshman in high school in April 1995.

  • Sitting at my desk at work, in Denver. A co-worker called and asked if I'd heard. It didn't quite sink in as to what she was saying.

    Strangely enough, in early 1998 I was in a lamaze class and the first one was cancelled, because the instructor had jury duty. It was the jury that convicted Terry Nichols.
