    Y'know, so many things happened on April 19th, some good and some very bad, I really don't know what the OP is talking about.

    The Simpsons premiered on April 19th, so I'm going to go with that.

    Thanks for the reminder. That occurred during my first year teaching. Innocent people and little kids. . .a cowardly, inhuman act.

    And we'd have Nation Health Care, so we would be healthy, but have bad teeth.

    In 1995, I had recently gotten out of the Navy and applied for a job with a national supermarket chain. When I walked in the door and turned on the TV, the OKC Bombing, like all the really horrible events we've shared as a nation, was on EVERY channel, and because of that, I knew that it was bad, and it was serious.

    The hiring manager had to take two weeks' bereavement leave to bury her dead, and because of this, my starting date was delayed by two weeks as well.

    I remember the day well, even if I didn't remember the date.

    Putting a "name" on a terrible, human "enhanced" natural event does IMO two divergent things: 1) I know so many people around NOLA now who just spew the word Katrina out as a temporal reference point the same way others place something in time relative to when Grandpaw died, or the flour mill closed. The name "Katrina" then has no meaning unto itself, in this context and I don't like it. 2) But I also do not want to emphasize the one event over the entire human event 10 years earlier because "it got a name and the "OKC Bombing" did not.

    In some ways the use of a name (for example Nine Eleven) forces us to assign importance to a terrible event. But IMO it shouldn't be a forced thing. We should remember the victims out of our internal sense of respect for those lost and harmed. But when there is no name, or if the descriptive term is so all encompassing, then we got troubles also. The fact that half the posters here don't seem to understand what the thread is about suggests maybe some precise way of describing/naming what happened in Oklahoma on April 19, 1995 probably should have been attempted. Surely at some point the people of Oklahoma City and surrounds must be weary of being defined as "the City that got Bombed".

    Say, "the city that was bombed" and I suspect many other names pop up in peoples' minds first.
    Say "Oklahoma" and I would suggest most people don't think "bombing".
    Say "Hiroshima" ........ Well, that's a different matter.

    Nonetheless, RIP, all innocent victims of bombings.

    Definitely will not forget those who were lost that day - including little children. :(

    Also, the Branch Davidian disaster also happened April 19, 1993.
