We stopped by Oklahoma City before the downpour started that still hasn’t stopped. Oklahoma City was the first place I flew to as an airline pilot in 2007, and I flew there dozens of times after that, but I never made it closer to downtown than the hotels out by the airport.
Today we visited the memorial for the 1995 Oklahoma City federal building bombing that killed 168 people.
While at the memorial, a line from Forrest Gump kept repeating in my head: “Momma said that the Forrest part was to remind me that sometimes we all do things that, well, just don’t make no sense.”
Trying to make sense of a nonsensical act isn’t possible. We have no control over it. What we do have control over is living life in a way that excites us each & every day and choosing to love those around us.
