Today was a rainy day in Oklahoma City. Since we had an extra day in the city, we decided to go visit the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum. I have to say it couldn't have been a more fitting day to experience this moving tribute to the lives lost that day.

The entrance to the memorial.

9:01 { "the innocence of the city before the attack" }

The Reflecting Pool

The Field of Empty Chairs { each of the 168 chairs symbolize a life lost }

A portion of the existing building.

9:03 { "the moment we were changed forever" }

The Fence { has held more than 60,000 items }

The Children's Area { illustrated tiles sent from children across America }

The Survivor Tree { "a profound symbol of human resilience" }
