    Who was the man who helped McVeigh carry out this plot?
    What would your reaction be if you were old enough to understand what happened in 1995?
    Do you feel it was right of McVeigh to do this just because he was mad at the government?
  • 16. Song Clip
    The song Lightning Crashes is perfect for this event because like the song portrays America lost its innocence of being immune to home-grown domestic terror. Oklahoma City Bombing was the worst act of terrorism prior to 9/11.
