Chris Cebollero and Kelly Grayson recall where they were when former U.S. soldier Timothy McVeigh packed a rented truck with explosives in a blast that killed 168 people and injured more than 500. 

Grayson said he remembers being at work, and seeing the aftermath of the bombing on T.V. 

"The survivor guilt hit me really hard," Grayson said. "What really struck me was, dammit, I ought to be there." 

The April 19, 1995 attack was the worst homegrown terror attack on American soil. They explore how the incident relates to our perceptions of terrorism, and events that have occurred since.

"Evil does not have a particular face or ethnic origin or anything else." Grayson said. "Timothy McVeigh was as white-bred and middle America as could possible be."
