The Oklahoma City Bombing-15 years later

Can’t believe that this is the 15th anniversary of the worst domestic terrorist bombing in the history of the United States. Some misguided person destroyed the federal building in Oklahoma City with kids inside just to prove a point. Initially as the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center was still fresh in the people’s minds they thought that it would also have been done by some crazy Islamic fanatic. But by fluke, the guy was arrested by a simple human experience and the threat of domestic terrorism came to light.

Hopefully lessons have been learnt by now that terrorism knows no faith, race, religion, creed, national origin or color. If some misguided person is hell bent on killing people than he is just that a person with no aspect of human character in him or her. They will kill just to have their own satisfaction. We should be on guard against judging people by their looks or otherwise, since terrorism comes in all shapes, forms or sizes. I sincerely hope that we may not seen any more destruction of private property or lives and in this regard should thank our always constantly vigilant law enforcement personnel to keep us safe and sound.
