Summary On April 19, 1995, the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City shook the nation, destroying our complacent sense of safety and sending a city into a tailspin of shock, grief, and bewilderment. How can a community recover from such a tragedy? How do we, as a nation, come to terms with the fact that our society can spawn a seemingly inexplicable act of violence?
