April 19

Last year I pointed this out but it bears repeating:

So, today is the anniversary of the start of the American Revolution (Battle of Lexington and Concord), the uprising of the Warsaw Ghetto in 1943 (started today and fought on for four weeks), the fire at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas in 1993 (in order to save the children they burned them alive while shooting into the compound) and the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 (supposedly as revenge for Waco, but the BATF office was empty and the Murrah Federal Building's daycare center was not).
If there's a “repeating day of death” today is a front-runner.

McVeigh an anyone else like him can use the debacle in Waco as an excuse for killing 168 innocent lives including children, but it far from justifies it. I am glad McVeigh is burning in hell and it appears that Terry Nichols might be ready to sing like a canary about who else was involved in the plot to blow up the Murrah Building. A day doesn't go by that I don't find myself reminded of that fateful morming and as long as I live in Oklahoma City I am sure I won't ever forget it.
