Man, the last week of February really sucked in 1993, didn't it? Today is the 10th anniversary of the BATF raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, a raid that left four agents and six Davidians dead, and which climaxed 51 days later on April 19 with the fiery deaths of 74 other cultists.
Among the things I didn't know that I do now after reading that article and this one is that there are still followers of David Koresh out there, and that they don't seem to be carrying around much of a grudge against the government for what happened. I can't say much about their theology, but I certainly admire their ability to forgive and move on.
Stray thought: What do you think the threat level will be on April 19? After all the wolf-crying that's been done, will anyone take it seriously? Just curious.Posted by Charles Kuffner on February 28, 2003 to The great state of Texas | TrackBack
