Oklahoma City National Memorial

One of the sites we wanted to visit while in OKC was the National Memorial. This is a place to remember the victims, survivors and rescuers of the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. The memorial was beautifully done and sobering to say the least.

The Gates of Time, monumental bronze gates that mark the entrance of the memorial.

The Survivor Tree

The surrounding buildings still show damage from the bomb.

The Memorial Fence, visitors are still able to leave small items that are periodically collected, cataloged, and stored.

Field of Empty Chairs

Damaged foundations still stand.
