Timothy McVeigh died Self-centered

It was Timothy McVeigh who thought of himself first. On his own, he decided that he had the right to plant a bomb at a government building in Oklahoma City. That act took the lives of many people, including a number of children whom McVeigh callously described as collateral damage. He died self-centered and self absorbed and never showed any remorse at all. His last statement was a hand written note that included words from the 1875 poem Invictus, which concludes with the lines: I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul. (Source Unknown).
