Hear Us, Oklahoma

We all speak together; one message, one voice.
The Kindred spirits who left you, not by our choice.

We were just there on that fateful day.
The bomb, the explosion, turning everything gray.

As our spirits left us, we gathered together,
To bond from the tragedy, be alone never.

The wisest spirits helped your babies, and those filled with fear,
As God sent his Angels, to make it all clear.

The light that engulfed us was so warm, and so bright.
It was filled with a love that made it all right.

To leave your world without saying goodbye;
We know that it hurt you. We heard your cries.

So we speak gently to our loved ones; our father, our mother.
Do this for kind to each other.

Within each of us now, an ultimate peace has descended.
The earthly trials and pains have all been ended.

We implore you our loved ones…do not grieve.
Let the sadness pass quickly…please let it leave.

And as the warm gentle wind barely touches your face,
Know it’s us there beside you, happy, walking in grace.
By: Sharon L. Lautner


Why did they take our children away,
Why did they bomb our loves that day?
Why did they destroy the peace of the land,
Why did they touch us with an ugly hand?
My baby is dead, I'll hold him no more,
My child is gone, I've cried 'till I'm sore.
My husband was killed, he was in that place,
My wife is gone, I'll miss her sweet face.
Our hearts are heavy because of wicked men,
Our hearts weep- why? -again and again.
Oklahoma, we weep with you, our hearts in pain.
While you struggle and labor your lives to regain.
Oklahoma, we love you; you're not all alone,
For when they hurt you, they've hurt one of our own.

The Bombing

explosion_koco_ds.jpg (12079 bytes)

On April 19, 1995, at 9:02 a.m., just after parents dropped their children off at day care at the Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, the unthinkable happened.

A massive bomb inside a rental truck exploded, blowing half of the nine-story building into oblivion.

A stunned nation watched as the bodies of men, women, and children were pulled from the rubble for nearly two weeks. When the smoke cleared and the exhausted rescue workers packed up and left, 168 people were dead in the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

Just 90 minutes after the explosion, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol officer pulled over 27-year-old Timothy McVeigh for driving without a license plate.

Shortly before he was to be released on April 21, McVeigh was recognized as a bombing suspect and was charged with the bombing.

When McVeigh's ex-Army buddy, Terry Nichols, discovered that he, too, was wanted for questioning, he voluntarily surrendered to police in Herington, Kansas, and was later charged in the bombing.

McVeigh and Nichols are awaiting trial in Denver, Colorado, and could receive the death penalty if convicted of terrorism, murder, and conspiracy charges.



June 2, 1997: 

The jury finds Timothy McVeigh guilty on 11 counts, including conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, use of a weapon of mass destruction, destruction by explosive, and eight counts of first-degree murder.

June 13,1997:

Timothy McVeigh is sentenced to die.

December 23, 1997:

Terry Nichols is found guilty of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction. He is found not guilty of destruction by explosive. He is also found guilty of eight counts of involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of eight federal employees.

January 7, 1998:

The jury in the Denver trial of Oklahoma City bombing conspirator Terry Nichols becomes deadlocked after spending two days deliberating Nichols' sentence. Judge Matsch dismisses the jury, a decision that moves the determination of sentence to Matsch and removes the possibility of a death sentence.
