A Week of Terrible Anniversaries

Today, April 19, marks the anniversaries of two horrors: the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City by Tim McVeigh in 1995 that cost 168 lives and the shootout and fire at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas in 1993 that killed about 79. Tomorrow will be 8th anniversary of the Columbine school shootings that left 13 innocent victims dead. And this past Monday, another grisly day was added to the list: the killing of 32 innocent students and professors at Virginia Tech University.

Tomorrow is also the anniversary of the birth of Adolf Hitler in 1889.
