Oklahoma City National Memorial

Monday morning Peoria greetings to all!

When I drive out West to visit my folks in New Mexico, I have my usual route along the interstate highways when I’m just trying getting from Peoria to Las Cruces in the shortest amount of time. Oklahoma City is one of those cities on my route where I’m just passing through and never really have had the time to stop and check it out! One of the places that I’ve always wanted to visit was the Oklahoma City National Memorial. I finally made time on my last visit out West and it was well worth the time. There is a serenity to the memorial and a calm in the air when you visit. It’s a place that you’re very quiet and respectful to honor the memory of those that were lost!

I was able to grab a few snaps while I was there in the daytime and night as well. One of the interesting things at the memorial are the field of empty chairs. There are 168 chairs and each chair represents one of the victims killed that day. At night, the chair are lit as you can see in my photo. Here are some of my snaps from that day!

Thanks as always for checking out my work and I hope that you have a great week to come!!!!
