Here's an excerpt from an interview by Denene Millner with Maxine McNair from 1997:
MAXINE McNAIR: All bad things should be talked about, so that they won't be repeated. Otherwise one day the world is going to suddenly cease to be. We're letting hate take over - look at what happened in Oklahoma City. We're too busy listening to gossip while our lives are going to hell in a handbasket.....Maybe this movie will help people understand that it was something that didn't need to be. Violence just doesn't solve anything.
Now is NOT the time to stand on the sidelines watching. It's psychological warfare, but I'd also dare to hope that it will result in a shift in consciousness as well as policy. Like combating HIV. People were forced to adapt new behaviors in order to prevent the epidemic from wiping out the majority population. We may not ever be able to get humans to stop trying to kill each other or derive pleasure from oppressing others, but we can certainly lessen the payoff for them to do so.
