The Dastardly Past: April 19.
Oklahoma City National Memorial by Carol M. Highsmith’s America, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division.
Some days in history are darker than others, and they fall within living memory. April 19th in Waco and then later in Oklahoma City is one of them. One of my intentions with this blog is to never celebrate the perpetrators of dastardly acts. With that in mind, let’s take a moment to instead remember the innocent people impacted by these events—I won’t call them victims; first because nobody wants to wear that label and, second, because in the years since these events, they have overcome and tried to move on. And please also remember the hundreds, if not thousands, of other people who rendered aid, gave comfort, and pursued justice, all while abiding by the rule of law.
