Oklahoma city bombing

April 19, 1995 at 9:02 A.M.

Great a red light I'm going to be late for my internship at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. I can almost hear it now Jenny you can't graduate because you were late too many days to the daycare you honestly don't care enough about children to be a kindergarten teacher. Oh well I guess I will pass the time listening to the radio. "Oh the best that I can. That was Hootie and the Blowfish with Hold my Hand to start off this fine wednesday morning. It's 9:00 A.M. and beautiful outside not a cloud in sight on this 19th of April. Later on todays show we will talk about possibly the best movie of the year Apollo 13 and the latest on Father Ted the oddest T.V. show there is. Now here is Garth Brooks singing The Dance. " Oh great there is a huge yellow ryder taking up several parking spots I will be late for sure. I guess I will have to go around the block.
BOOM!! My car shook beneath me. All I can hear are screams of innocent people. I get out of my car and run to the front of the building, what I find next was beyond belief. The front half of the building was gone including the daycare. I couldn't stand it I fell to the ground and started bawling until a police officer told me I had to leave because they had found another bomb they were trying to defuse at the moment. I ran back to my car to which the radio was talking about breaking news of the downtown bombing. I drove back to my dorm in rage. When I got home my roommates were watching t.v. crying thinking I was dead. Before I could get the chance to call my parents to tell them I was ok they were calling me. The next couple of days we were glued to the television hoping they would catch the culprit. To our disbelief Timothy Mcveigh was already in jail for speeding 90 minutes after the bombing. I am so glad that he is going to get punished for I have lost many friends in this accident. My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones and friends in this tragedy and to the 19 mothers who lost their babies.
