It's hard to believe it has been 14 years since the Murrah building was bombed. I was so struck and saddened by the images that came out of Oklahoma City that day. I can remember exactly where I was when it happened: in the living room of the sorority house with my mom, as she had come down to school to take a bunch of stuff home for me for the summer before our final move-out date. Where were you?
