'We will forgive, we will never forget.’ Neatly written in white shoe polish on the windshield of an Oklahoma State Police car at the scene. You feel like you are on the end of the earth. Grey worn road, roadblocks everywhere.
Featured in The New Yorker, Lynn Pauley’s “At the site” recounts the domestic terrorist attack on the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on April 19, 1995. The bombing took the lives of 168 individuals, including 19 children. Sent by the New Yorker, Pauley visited the city and site for three days where she interviewed citizens, recorded thoughts, and produced paintings and drawings based on her interviews, and what she saw in and around the blast site.
