OKLAHOMA CITY -- Priscilla Salyers nearly gave up knitting after she was seriously injured during the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.
But the 58-year-old says she forced herself to return to her old hobby and even made a sweater using yarn recovered from the bombed-out Alfred P. Murrah federal building.
On Friday, Salyers shared her story of surviving the bombing with visitors at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.
Part of a series of lectures, museum officials say the goal is to give visitors a first-hand perspective of the April 19, 1995, blast that killed 168 people and remains the nation's most deadly domestic terrorist attack.
The "First Person: Stories of Hope" lecture series will be held every Friday at the museum in downtown Oklahoma City.
