Nw 5th Street at N. Robinson
|Looking left from inside the entrance
toward the old basement area that was retained as a memorial.
|The wall on the east end of the reflection pool
is marked "9:01;" on the west end, "9:03."
The world changed in the intervening minutes.
|The walk around the pool was paved with marble from the original building facing.|
|Memorial plaques were installed on the east wall of the Murrah Building basement.|
|Each chair represents a life lost in the explosion.
Names and information about the victims are inscribed on the clear chair bases.
The rows represent the building floors on which they died.
|Looking to the southwest from the entrance across the length of the reflection pool showing
the memorial chairs behind the pines. The reflection pool is about one inch deep over a bed of black granite.
|The old tree in the parking lot that was across the street from the Murrah Building survived the
explosion and all the demolition and memorial site contruction. It has been incorporated into the memorial.
The old building is now the museum for the memorial site.
|Looking back across the pool from the north side near the exit.|
|The early Sunday morning sun shining through the chair bases evoked a sense of awe.|
|The Sunday morning sun sheds its brilliant glory!
Our church Seniors group was just stopping for the night in Oklahoma City on a trip to South Dakota
with no time in our schedule planned for this stop.
But time seemed to stand still for a brief moment on Sunday morning for this special time of worship.
|The authorities have allowed the public to express their feelings with memorial objects
placed on this old constuction fence left at the exit just for this purpose.
|The construction fence continued on down the block toward the museum.|
