Being from OKC, the Oklahoma City bombing has always been very close to my heart. I was quite young when it occurred but can still feel the impact it left on our city. Next year will be the 20th anniversary.
It showed the resilience of our community and we grew closer together through the tragedy. If you have never gone to the Oklahoma City National Memorial grounds or museum you should definitely take the time to experience it. Trust me, it will make a big impact.
Please take a moment today to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever.
Tragedies like these remind you of how important it is to stop, breathe, and appreciate your life. I know that I get caught up in the little things all the time and need to actively tell myself to reflect on the most important things. Many things simply distract.
