Since a bomb attack in 1995 killed 168 people, Oklahoma City has resisted being a metaphor for the attack itself. Can a city ever shake the legacy of a tragedy? Pastor Mark McAdow, senior pastor at First United Methodist Church in Oklahoma City discusses the healing process for Oklahoma City. The church is located across the street from the former site of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building; when the federal building was bombed, two thirds of the church was damaged.
We're also joined by Rabbi Samuel L. Cohon, of the Temple at Emanu-El in Tucson, Ariz. He contextualizes the recent events there and discusses that city's grieving process.
