With that being said, there are some emotions involved in such a presentation. I will share some of the images of the event, and we will hear eyewitness testimony from some of the victims and their families. While this is a serious story about a real occurrence, please be aware that I have screened all the material. There are some similarities between the 1995 bombing and Joplin's experience with the 2011 tornado that may trigger memories in some of our students, as well. In it all, my theme has always been, One person did a bad thing that day, but thousands of good people did good things in response. I will make every effort to make that point clear.
A special thanks to the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum for loaning us the Hope Trunk to enhance the presentation.
