'It Blew Away Your Normal,' One Survivor Says
OKLAHOMA CITY -- For years after she was trapped beneath six feet of rubble and seriously injured in the Oklahoma City bombing, Amy Petty kept her experience and the grief she felt over the deaths of 18 co-workers mostly to herself.

McVeigh execution was the quickest from sentence to execution in decades. Where were the candlelight vigils?
And what happened to John Doe #2?
That’s right. And there were Middle-Eastern men involved. Why are they not investigating that?
I remember hearing the initial reports from a local talk show, and they were talking about the suspects, including a Middle-Easter man. Why was that dropped? There’s enough witnesses to the fact that a muslim was involved.
The memory of the victims demands justice!
The Clintonista’s avoided making the connection, but I am convinced it was there.
I lived in OK before the bombing, moved back to TX couple of years before. Wonderful people in OK and I love the state.
A friend of mine was IT manager for a company who’s building was facing the Murrah Building when the blast took place. He had injured employees. He left the company and state not long after that. He retired here in TX.
Bad Bad memory.
Now, we are literally looking into the Abyss. And have the absolute wrong captain sleeping in the White House. We are in self-destruct mode.
“When you get kicked in the teeth, you just don’t lie there. You get up and make the most of what you have,” she said. “Here we are 14 years out, and I feel pretty good about letting them see that’s not what you do. I do think it’s a very important message.”
Sadly...tragically...we have learned little from that attack.
So little talk and in fact ignoring the clear ties to Islamic Terror at the time. McVeigh and Nichols were not "right wing christian militia"". They were tied at the hip to Islamics and they were used as a Reichstag event at the time when our own governmental infiltrator warnings went unheeded.
With all the hype and demonizing of conservtives going on now, I fear there may be more such events in our future, while hoping and praying it is not so.
I guess even liberals don’t have any sympathy for a terrorist who killed so many fellow Americans.
I’ll never forget the bombing- I was in OK City on business that fateful morning and heard/ felt the explosion. God rest the souls of those killed, bless those who survived and those who came to their aid.
