Remind me of this,
and of this,
which always reminds me of this,
I wasn't working in OKC at the time of the bombing but I was working downtown OKC when the memorial was being built. I would walk over to the sight and watch the bulldozers move our Oklahoma red dirt around. The area was large and the hole very deep.
I have been to the memorial since its completion but it was not the same as being there with the open ground. It is sacred ground, a place of reverence.
P.S. Oklahoman, Woody Guthrie wrote a song Holy Ground and its words are just as beautiful.
