This fence is to the south where the previous picture is the fence
to the north of the entrance wall.
Once you enter in you see the wall on the other end .
Notice the steeple and cross in the right hand corner?
This was a very cloudy day so it is a little hard to see.
Offers some peace doesn't it?
The time, the minute, before the world changed forever.
The time, the very minute AFTER the world was changed forever.
In between the two walls of time is a reflection pool.
The water is always flowing, the sound of peace and tranquility.
The water is 3/4" deep, but represents the mysteries of life.
Inside to the south are the chairs, each one represents a person who died.
No longer to sit at the dinner table of life with their family and loved ones.
They are at the place where the rental truck parked to blow up the building.
There are nine rows to represents the 9 floors of the building.
Each person is placed in the row of the floor they died on.
The little chairs are for the children, either in the daycare or with their parents.
Most of the children were killed on the second floor.
These five chairs are separated from the other just a little.
They are for the five people who lost their lives out side of the building.
Here is the survivor tree with the Journal of Records building behind it.
This tree was just across the street from the blast.
This message is written on the wall of the above building.
This was written by team 5 who were searching for survivors of the blast.
This is an apartment building just to the west of the memorial.
It was occupied at the time of the blast and suffered damage.
It is still lived in today and repairs have not been made. Scary huh?
This building has the actual recording of the van pulling up, parking,
and Timothy McVey running away. It also recorded the blast.
So that would be the 9:03 wall you are looking at. The times are
on the inside of the walls, not facing the street.
A view of the Memorial from the Survivor Tree area
And looking at OKC skyline.
These ladies are there to remember.
I wonder are they survivors, family of victims,
or like me, there to pay respect?
