Steve Lackmeyer column well worth the read

Steve Lackmeyer took a moment and wrote a powerful piece related to his recent interview with a Swedish radio network.

He agreed to the interview with the Swedish Broadcasting Corp., to talk about how Oklahoma City has grown since the 1995 bombing and what the people in that area of the world can expect after the recent attacks in Norway.

I reported on that 1995 attack. I’ve covered the recovery of downtown ever since. But I’ve always been a bit skittish about the whole thing. A week into the tragedy I fled Oklahoma City, naively thinking I could escape the story. On the second anniversary of the bombing I literally lost control of my emotional well being — I just couldn’t bear to watch the procession of victims’ relatives and survivors marching down Robinson Avenue.

Great stuff. And it gets even better from there. If you read anything on NewsOK this week, please read this.
