The Unfinished Bombing: Oklahoma City in American Memory
On April 19, 1995 the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City shook the nation, destroying our complacent sense of safety and sending a community into a tailspin of shock, grief, and bewild
erment. Almost as difficult as the bombing itself has been the aftermath, its legacy for Oklahoma City and for the nation, and the struggle to recover from this unprecedented attack.
In The Unfinished Bombing, Edward T. Linenthal explores the many ways Oklahomans and other Americans have tried to grapple with this catastrophe. Working with exclusive access to materials gathered by the Oklahoma City National Memorial Archive and drawing from over 150 personal interviews with family members of those murdered, survivors, rescuers, and many others. Linenthal looks at how the bombing threatened cherished ideas about American innocence, sparked national debate on how to respond to terrorism at home and abroad, and engendered a new "bereaved community" in Oklahoma City itself. Linenthal examines how different stories about the bombing were told through positive narratives of civic renewal and of religious redemption and more negative narratives of toxicity
and trauma. He writes about the extraordinary bonds of affection that were created in the wake of the bombing, acts of kindness, empathy, and compassion that existed alongside the toxic legacy of the event. The Unfinished Bombing offers a compelling look at both the individual and the larger cultural consequences of one of the most searing events in recent American history.
How do Americans, long innocent of such things, comprehend large-scale acts of domestic terrorism? How do they commemorate the victims of such deeds? In this unfortunately timely book, historian Edward T. Linenthal examines these questions as they were addressed by the people of Oklahoma City after the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
In that attack, 168 men, women, and children died. Each left behind stunned, grieving relatives and loved ones; each left behind a personal history suddenly become part of the cultural and psychic property of the nation, as in the instance of Baylee Almon, whose corpse, cradled in the arms of a fireman, became an iconic image. As Linenthal writes in this careful work of cultural history, it fell on Oklahomans to process their grief in the wake of "violent mass death," no easy task, and to design and construct an appropriate memorial
--which, after painful arguments over every detail, they did, and to stunning effect. Linenthal's thoughtful account summarizes some of the many lessons to be drawn from the Oklahoma City attack, lessons that, sadly, the world has had to learn anew. --Gregory McNamee
Sloane Square SW1 Venus Fountain
Venus Fountain by Gilbert Ledward RA (1953)
Installed in 1953, the fountain in Sloane Square depicts Venus in a traditional classical pose and is the work of highly regarded Twentieth Century sculptor Gilbert Ledward.
David Lammy said:
"The Venus Fountain is of special interest in a national context as a beautifully executed sculpture by a prominent twentieth century sculptor. And this consultation will now allow all members of the public, including amenity bodies, architects and other specialists, the opportunity to comment on the merits of this fountain before a decision is made."
The fountain has local connections of wider interest as Gilbert Ledward, one of an almost forgotten generation of Twentieth Century sculptors, was born in Chelsea and trained as a sculptor and later worked as professor at the Royal College of Art, Kensington Gore. A relief of Charles II and Nell Gwynn on the fountain's basin relates to the site of a house used by Gwynn in nearby Kings Road. Gilbert Ledward undertook a variety of post-war commissions, amongst which were a memorial
to the Submarine Service, commandos, and airborne forces (1948) in the cloister of Westminster Abbey, and the bronze figures of St Nicholas and St Christopher for Great Ormond Street Hospital (1952).
The John Lennon Memorial in Central Park up on Strawberry Fields. Each day the "Mayor of Strawberry Fields", Ayrton "Gary" Ferreria dos Santos Jr (wikipedia or google the guy of title), decorates the memorial
with cut flowers
which people presume he gets from florist
s around the city
. Each day the basic design of the the peace symbol remains the same, but the flowers, and the actual pattern change, as do the objects in it I believe. Anyhow, the work he does in John Lennon's memory is quite something, and a little bit moving, and if you get the chance of being there just as he's about to put it together, sit down on one of the benches and just watch. It doesn't take long at all, but it's quite something to see it come together so beautifully.
