About the tour

The April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, was one of the first acts of domestic terrorism on American soil. At least 168 people, including men, women and children, were killed when a truck, filled with ammonium nitrate, exploded in front of the building during a busy work day. No one thought that something like this could ever happen here--smack dab in the middle of America. The devastation was felt around the world. However, this tragedy fueled the Oklahoma Spirit that continues today. It also led to many security enhancements throughout the nation. Join Cindy as she takes you to see this unique monument in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City. Hear her own story of living through this difficult time in Oklahoma. Learn about 9:02--the minute that changed everything. Glimpse the Survivor Tree and the Remembrance Fence. We hope you enjoy seeing this National Memorial and learning about how this tragic event changed and shaped America for forever.

Thank you for such a moving tour and for sharing your personal stories. This tour was so much more than I thought it would be. It would have been my loss not to join today.

Expertly delivered. Excellent job on a horrific event. Someone asked a ridiculous question completely irrelevant ... on such a serious topic
