After the September 11th attacks, Congress gave victims & families of deceased victims generous federal compensation payments. Everyone was stunned by the attacks that claimed so many lives in the economic hub of New York City.
The families of the deceased victims of the Oklahoma City bombing which also stunned the nation were given a two-year reprieve on their federal income taxes. Many victims and families of the 168 deceased victims have lost their homes, filed bankruptcy, and are still undergoing psychiatric treatment.

What is the value of an American life claimed by terrorists? The answer, it turns out, depends on where and when you die.

Congress gave the families of victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks generous federal compensation payments. Most ended up millionaires.

Congress gave the families of victims of the April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City bombing a two-year reprieve on their federal income taxes. Some ended up losing their homes.

Although there were less victims in the Oklahoma City bombing and perhaps a lessened degree of shock because Oklahoma is not an economic hub to domestic affairs, it is an atrocity that Congress & the government did not help the best they could.
Why are the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing forgotten, is it because it was domestic terrorism by a white Christian or because Oklahoma faces prejudice because it lacks economic power? Just stating some theoretical reasoning, no opinion is stated by me.


Remember April 19, 1995
