4TH ANNUAL BERKELEY COLLEGE
NATIONAL SECURITY FORUM,
“EVENTS THAT CHANGED OUR WAY OF LIFE FOREVER”

Keynote Address:
Kathy Sanders’ Journey From Oklahoma City Bombing to Forgiveness

Kathy Sanders, author of Now You See Me: How I Forgave the Unforgivable, delivered the keynote address during the 4th Annual Berkeley College National Security Forum, “Events that Changed Our Way of Life Forever.” Ms. Sanders became the face for media’s coverage of the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995, after her two young grandsons were killed in the explosion.

Ms. Sanders relived her experience at the scene of the massacre, and how she discovered that her grandsons Chase, age 2, and Colton, age 3, were among the lives lost during the attack on the Alfred P. Murrah building in Oklahoma City. She discussed her quest to seek answers for how such an incident could occur, which led to conducting her own investigation and forming an unlikely bond with one of the bombers, Terry Nichols, and his family.

The more time Ms. Sanders spent with the Nichols family, the more she realized she needed to forgive in order to heal. “Forgiveness and punishment are two different things,” she said. “The unwillingness to forgive is at the heart of every conflict. We need to incorporate forgiveness into every aspect of our lives.”
