Hope is a Verb
with Amy Downs


Amy was buried under the rubble of the Oklahoma City Federal Building during the 1995 attack. Fully conscious but completely incapacitated, she waited nearly an hour before her rescue. In her own words, her life flashed before her eyes complete with doubt, regret and fear.

The trauma of everyday life is unavoidable, but this was another type of experience altogether. Half her team lost their lives, she spent over a week in the hospital, and has spent all these years since that tragedy rebuilding her own life and her community. From trauma to triumph.
