TEN YEARS SINCE OKLAHOMA CITY BOMBING
I remember ten years ago I was living in Springfield, Illinois working for Govenor Jim Edgar as a legislative liaison (peon lobbyist straight out of college). A couple years out of college, I was energetic and idealistic. Ten years ago I remember the shock of hearing about the bombing and then watching the rubble of the federal building on being sorted through on TV. The crying faces and bewildered people walking around. Some of my idealism was taken away. My lack of faith in human nature confirmed, which was something I wanted to ignore in my heart.
Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols were two names I will never forget.
