    Very sad day. I cannot help but think of that picture (will not post it, it affects me too much) of little Bailey's body being held by that fireman.

    This was one of the first attacks that showed how the answer to the question "How much damage can 10 or so focused, dedicated people really do?" changed from "not much" to "way too much."

    Modern technology for all the good it has done, has reached a point where a small group of people could do damage to hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands.

    Remember that the 9/11 plotters thought there was a chance to bring both buildings down with the hits. If they would have fallen at impact causualties would have been much higher.

    The fireman in the picture with Bailey is an acquantance of mine. He and I helped coach our son's little league baseball team. I was in my office just 6 blocks from the blast. My wife's office was 3 blocks away. Our son, 2 at the time was at daycare just 10 blocks away. It was a surreal day and I won't bore you with the details other than this. When our son was born, we visited the YMCA across from the Murrah building to check out their daycare. We didn't like it and went with another one close to downtown. Had we known that the Murrah building had a daycare within walking distance of our offices, we probably would have put our son there. Scary! I've only been to the memorial twice in the last 15 years and we've yet to tour the attached museum. The memories are just too raw, even now.

    On todays anniversary people in Oklahoma are having memmorials and I though maybe ALL Americans could at least come together for one tiny second to recognise that loss.

    I guess I was wrong.

    Yes, it's still morning in Oklahoma, but only for 24 more minutes.

    It must have felt like a nightmare.

    PTSD, if he had it, is NO excuse for what he did. PTSD doesn't make one a militant anarchist.

    He hated the government, not the country. Can you get ANYTHING right? Just ONCE?
