Oklahoma City National Memorial
USA
At 9:02 a.m. April 19, 1995, a truck bomb exploded in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The focused damage by the bomb destroyed the Murrah building as well as causing severe damage to several other buildings nearby. 168 people were killed and over 800 others were injured.
This bombing was the largest terrorist attack on American soil in history before the World Trade Center attacks of September 11, 2001. Timothy McVeigh, a U.S. Army veteran was tried for the attack, found guilty and executed. McVeigh’s defense was that the bombing was a justifiable response to the crimes of the U.S. Government.
The Oklahoma City National Memorial was dedicated on the fifth anniversary of the attack. It is located on the site of the former Murrah building. The Memorial is comprised of three distinct components: The Outdoor Symbolic Memorial, the Memorial Museum and the Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism.
Memorial Mission Statement
We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those who were changed forever. May all who leave her know the impact of violence. May this Memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
