On April 19, 1995 the age of innocence came to an abrupt end for many of us, it started with the initial WTC bombing and it culminated with this act. 168 or 169 people died innocently because of two frindgies: Tim McVeigh and Terry Nichols. A subsequent investigation led to one other who aided in preparation, Michael Fortier. McVeigh was executed and Nichols is nowliving his life underground in Florence, Colorado. Of the 169, at least 19 were children some as young as 3 months... a very horrific act. Allegedly this was done as some type of retribution for Waco and Ruby Ridge, but never made all that much sense. WACO and Ruby Ridge were infuriating as that was the ultimate government intrusion... As in any investigation the information provided and information released is controlled and filtered. Some find the results of the investigation as a viable explanation, others do not. Anyways our lives changed forever after this, and RIP all of the innocents who were killed in this blast... Is it ironical on this anniversary, that there is a demonstration in DC about carrrying guns???... it seems to take away from the memory who died senseless violence... particularly as guns are not in the forefront and have not been.... Second Amendment March They could have at least waited until tommorrow, 4/20 the anniversary of Hitler's Birth, but that would somehow sanctify the Columbine Killings which also occured on that day. Maybe everyone should just go back to bed, except for the stoners who really know how to enjoy the day.. Timothy Leary lives on in the minds of many.
