Transcript In Loving Memory America Remembers the Day of the Oklahoma Bombing ••••••••••• Standing upon the flattened ground where a federal office building once stood until a bomb brought it down more than three years ago, Vice President Al Gore broke ground October 25 for a memorial to the 168 people killed and for the many people who helped Oklahoma City's physical and spiritual rebuilding. "Today we gather to seek the light, to find in this soil, nourished with a million tears, the harvest of God's healing grace," Gore said. "The people who died were victims of one of the crudest visitations of evil this nation has ever seen," Gore said. "But we offer them today not pity but honor, for as much as any soldier who ever fought in any war, they paid the price of our freedom." At least 2,500 people attended the groundbreaking for the I memorial. Attorney General Janet Reno and Gov. Frank Keating were among those at the ceremony. After speeches, Gore took a shiny shovel and dug it into the ground where the building once stood. One after another, people grasped the shovel that Gore passed to them and, dressed in their Sunday best, took a turn tossing a chunk of soil into a pile. " The National Memorial Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism and Violence is expected to open late next year. Former Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, who is serving as national fund-raising chairman for the memorial. A portion of the chain-link fence that surrounded the bomb site will be kept as part of the memorial. The fence has become a shrine, with visitors leaving mementos. The fence holds "the real story of our democracy. This is how we feel," Gore said. Timothy McVeigh was sentenced to death for the bombing. Terry Nichols was sentenced to life prison as a bombing conspirator. "The people who died were victims of one of the cruelest visitations of evil this nation has ever seen,"- Al Gore The Statue of the Weeping Jesus stands in front of the Memorial Above: A woman grieves over the people who died in the Oklahoma City bombing.
