Different paths to peace after Oklahoma City bombing

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Time has healed some wounds for relatives of those killed in the Oklahoma City bombing 20 years ago this weekend, but some have found that moving on meant moving away.

Diane Koch's husband was killed in the April 19, 1995, blast. She said it took years for her to see beauty anywhere, but that it still took moving away to give her peace after she worked for years as a victims' advocate.

Former President Bill Clinton is scheduled to speak at anniversary ceremonies on Sunday. He traveled to Oklahoma City in the days after the bombing to comfort residents and make a pledge for justice.

Ex-soldier Timothy McVeigh was executed for the attack, which killed 168 people in the worst act of domestic terrorism on American soil.
