OK, it was supposed to be a poll. Did you know right away or did you, like me have to look up the date? There's an honor code . . .

I knew exactly the memorial, but I don't know the date. I can delete if I messed up your quiz.

The memorial for the Oklahoma City bombing. The chairs represent all the children that were killed at the school that Timothy McVeigh bombed. It happened on April 19, 1995. Here's the link to the memorial site: http://www.oklahomacitynationalmemor...on=1&catid=193

The Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. I remember.

I lived in OKC when this happened and knew someone who died in the Murrah building explosion http://www.oklahomacitynationalmemor...g=115&catid=24.

So yes, I know exactly what the picture is of and know the date that it happened. April 19th, 1995.

Honestly, that date is more significant to me than 9/11/01, even though the scope and long-term consequences were not nearly as huge. It makes a difference when tragedy strikes in your own town and when you know someone who was directly impacted. I'm sure people who have lived in places where some kind of terrorism or deadly event has happened remember the exact date and can tell you if there is a memorial. I couldn't tell you what the dates were for events like Columbine, Katrina, Boston marathon, Sandy Hook, Hurricane Sandy - but I'm sure the people who live in those places can tell you.

It is a beautiful memorial, and worth going to for anyone ever visiting OKC.

I've never seen this before. I remember when Timothy McVeigh bombed the Murrah building, and even the date: April 19, 1995. I know the date because it's the birthday of the friend who was the best man in my wedding; I was at home in 1993, cutting out my wedding dress, when the siege at the Branch Dividian complex in Waco, TX, occurred; the attack on the Murrah building was two years to the day after Waco. However, I have never seen the memorial before; it's very moving.

Thank you for posting this.

I knew it too. It's the date after my anniversary, not same year though. I'm originally from OKC, and my mom used to work in the Murrah building as an IRS agent. My bank was also in that building. We knew many people who died or were affected by this. It was very sobering. I need to go visit sometime. It's supposed to be beautiful.
