The OKC Bomb, 15 Years On

I have no words to match those of Ed Vulliamy, who reported on the Oklahoma City bombing in April 1995, on Timothy McVeigh, and now on the 15th anniversary of the bombing.

I remained horrified by the mass murder committed by a former American soldier and cannot fathom how he thought any cause was served by killing 19 children, among his 168 victims.

I am now and will forever remain in awe of the people of Oklahoma City. They showed the rest of us -- yes, I'm looking at you, New York City -- how to honor the memory of those taken by the faithless in truly senseless acts of violence.
