Subject: "This Day" in the 1990s,.....

Written By: jersey_bwoy2078 on 04/19/06 at 4:56 pm

There are three major events in the month of April that stick out in our generation's mind when it comes to current issues.  These events happened this week back in the 1990s. 

April 19, 1993 - David Koresh and his followers, after 51 days of stand-off, engage in gunfight with local Waco law enforcers, FBI, and ATF...which resulted in the burning down of the Branch Davidian and the death of Koresh and his followers.

April 19, 1995 - At 9:02am Central time, a bomb detonated in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people...including 19 children in the daycare.  The bombing was later linked to two domestic terrorists by the names of Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols.  McVeigh was executed in 2001, and Nichols is still in prison.

April 20, 1999 - At 11:17am, the first gunshot was fired in the parking lot, by one of Columbine High School's entrances.  By 12:05pm 15 students, including the two gunmen and a teacher lay dead at the scene.  By far, the Denver suburb of Littleton, Colorado was shaken by the worst school shooting since March of 1996 in Moses Lake, Washington.  The two shooters, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold had the scheme planned out since Fall 1998 to teach a lesson to all the perfect kids, that had rejected them since they were younger.

In memory...please remember.

The '90s were not perfect, that's for sure.
