Oklahoma bombings 20 years on and Charlie

After dwelling on the tragedy that happened in France with Charlie Hebdo and the Jewish Kosher Supermarket  (and let's not forget the thousands slaughtered in Nigeria by the Boko Haram) I recall that we will be approaching the 20th anniversary of the Oklahoma city bombing (April 19th, 1995). I was living in Denver, Colorado, at that time and remember, that the hysteria that surrounded it and the belief that this was a act of middle eastern terrorism. I however it was some crazy American (who was not actually crazy) who showed very little remorse for the poor child in the fireman's arms a terrible icon that I will never forget
