I was less than 10 when Timothy McVeigh attacked the Alfred Murrah building, so unfortunately, I don’t really remember it.
Particularly weird to me is that we just had run a counter-terrorism exercise during a b-school workshop, and one of the suspects was TM – Timothy McVeigh himself.
At this point, it truly hit me that each chair represented someone who died after having done nothing besides showing up to work and doing their job. I mean – I knew that was the case as soon as I walked in, but it wasn’t until this exact moment that I truly felt it in my gut. I got uncomfortable and depressed, so I decided to leave.
