On the way back from Iowa, we stopped in OKC and checked out the Memorial from when the Murrah Building was blown up. Couldn’t have asked for a better afternoon/evening to take these pictures.

“And Jesus Wept” is a statue across the street from the Memorial

9:01 in reflecting pool

The Museum in the Reflecting Pool

The Sunlight lit up some of the bases in the Field of Empty Chairs

I think it was more startling and moving to me to see the Field of Empty Chairs Illuminated from within just after Sunset

9:03 signifies that everything was changed forever.

The Field of Empty Chairs after Dark

There are two sizes of chairs in the Field, the large chairs are for the adults who lost their lives in the Murrah building bombing. The Small Chairs are for the children.


The tree is a 97 year old elm that survived the Bomb blast


The text at the entrance reads:
“We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived, and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.”
