On our last day in Oklahoma City, we brought our kids to Oklahoma City National Memorial.
It was a quiet, more somber visit, punctuated with hard to answer questions. We answered them the best we could, but some of the questions were more philosophical in nature, and those don't always have one clear answer.
And sometimes there simply isn't an answer.
Don't be afraid to take your kids to Oklahoma City National Memorial. Take the opportunity to walk with your kids and exchange thoughts and ideas with them. Don't leave them in the dark when the world has so much light.
Cost: the outdoor memorial is free
Hours: 24 hrs a day, 365 days a year
What to see: Murrah Plaza, Field of Empty Chairs, Survivor Wall, Reflecting Pool, Survivor Tree, Rescuers' Orchard and more
