Survivor Tree

History. Repeating.

12 years ago this morning, 168 people were killed in a terrible roar in a place called Oklahoma City. It was the worst act of domestic terrorism, and the second deadliest act of terrorism ever on US soil.

Most of the time, I don't think about what happened to the men, women and children of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. Then on days like today, I think: Lord, has it been 12 years since then?

This week especially, it serves as a reminder that we've been here before, and, Lord help us, we'll be here again.
