Transcript of timothy mcveigh

On the morning of April 19, 1995, an ex-Army soldier and security guard named Timothy McVeigh parked a rented Ryder truck in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City. He was about to commit mass murder.
Inside the vehicle was a powerful bomb made out of a deadly cocktail of agricultural fertilizer, diesel fuel, and other chemicals. McVeigh got out, locked the door, and headed towards his getaway car. He ignited one timed fuse, then another.
At precisely 9:02 a.m., the bomb exploded.

The Effects

What were you doing when you heard of the bombing? I was at home doing housework at the time.

This event changed the way I looked at the nation and the world. The bombing not only shook a nation, but it shook my trust in people.
