Forever Changed: Remembering Oklahoma City, April 19, 1995
Prometheus Books, 1998 - History - 332 pages
Royalties from Forever Changed will aid those survivors and family members who have contributed to this book.
Much has been written about the Oklahoma City bombing and how 168 people were killed. But news accounts often fail to put a face on the victims or to show the significance of their lives and contributions to their families and communities. Little is known about the lives of the many who survived the blast and the families of those who didn't. The tomorrows of so many ordinary people have been irreparably altered by a single act of domestic terrorism.
Three years in the making, Forever Changed is the exclusive volume that brings together survivors and family members of victims. This powerful work tells the special stories of those who died, the pain endured by their families, and the ongoing struggles of the survivors a circle of grieving and hope that reaches far beyond the heartland. These unique first person accounts lucidly illustrate the goodness that was lost on April 19, 1995, the legacies that remain, and the courage of all those who were affected by the bombing.
Internationally recognized victim's rights advocate Marsha Kight and her assistant, Lori Doggett, collected these stories and photographs from the many families in their home city and kept them in storage until the juries were chosen for the perpetrators' trials. Kight also contributes the story of her daughter, Frankie Merrell, 23, who was killed in the blast.
