‘Tetrad: A Blood Moon In The Grand Cardinal Cross’,“ reminds us of April events: “The Waco siege and massacre occurred April 19, 1993. The Oklahoma city bombing also happened on April 19, in 1995. The Columbine shootings occurred on April 20, 1999, and the shootings at Virginia Tech happened April 16, 2007.
