Oklahoma Memorial

Such a well-conceived memorial. A moving tribute to the extraordinary strength of the human spirit.

Rememberances

Murph, that was a very nice tribute to your friend. That day is burned into the memories of all of us living here at the time, and we all were affected. If not affected to the first degree such as yours, then almost invariably to a second or third degree as coworkers, and friends, and the guy I saw at my grocery store every week told their stories. I remember being very angry at 'someone' doing that to MY town.
And a short story I want to share: One of the vendors to my then company lived out of state, and his brother worked for FEMA. The vendor shared that his brother had also worked in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew in 1992. The brother was so struck by the difference in the two experiences: in Florida, when a call for water went out, trucks would back up with bottles they were happy to sell for $5 each. He said here, when the call went out for gloves, water, or any other item, trucks backed up and just started handing them out, no charge. "We had more gloves than we knew what to do with, but that told me a lot about the people in Oklahoma." I've always been grateful to have heard that story.
