Tragedy: The Oklahoma Bombing









Who can ever forget the day of the Oklahoma Bombing. At 9:02 am on April 19,1995, I think the world stopped, as every news bulletin announced the bombing of the Oklahoma Government Building. 168 people were pronounced dead, 19 of them small children who had just been dropped off at the day-care center in the building. The one memory that always stays in my mind, as well as most other people, is the tragic picture of the Fireman coming out of the building with a small infant, one of the many casualties of that day. Cassie of "myheartandsew.etsy.com" choose that picture to memorialize the Oklahoma Bombing as a symbol of a Tragedy that many cannot forget. It is a beautiful addition to our Tragedy Quilt.
