Oklahoma City Chairs

I have thought a little about Oklahoma City today for some reason or another.  Here are a few pictures from the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

The memorial has 168 bronze, stone, and glass chairs representing those who died from the bombing.  Each one has the name of the person it represents etched on the glass at the bottom.  The architects arranged the chairs in separate rows signifying the different floors of the building on which the person died, near to the place at which they worked in the building.  Five chairs on the far west side represent people not in the building who also died.  Smaller chairs represent the children.  Mothers who were pregnant have their unborn children listed under their names on their chair.
