"My wife was killed in the OKC Bombing 10 years ago. I just read your story twice & was very impressed. My feelings are that we got the shaft, as Congress handed out millions to the Sept. 11th victims. While I grieve with them hand in hand, it doesn't seem fair. I was a factory worker, working at a meat processing plant at the time of my wife's death. We have a son together, he was 5 at the time. But I had to go back to work & I am still a paycheck to paycheck factory worker. I would like to go back to counseling, but have been told the fund is no more. Thank you for the story & for showing the world the truth."
