15 years ago today

Posted By on Mon, Apr 19, 2010 at 12:39 PM

Today marks the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. President Obama declared today a National Day of Service and Remembrance for Victims and Survivors of Terrorism. Here is an excerpt from Obama's proclamation.

Terrorists prey on the innocent and vulnerable, and have nothing to offer except hatred and destruction. No cause justifies their actions, yet they have claimed many victims around the world. Wherever they kidnap or kill, they reveal only their own bankrupt vision, and disrupt or destroy lives. Their actions impact not only their victims, but the families, friends, and fellow citizens of those who are targeted.
