After 33 years of life, Timothy McVeigh now has just hours until death. Monday morning at 7 am local time, a lethal injection of drugs will kill the Oklahoma City bomber. One of McVeighs lawyers says his client is preparing for the end.

Hes actually been in a good frame of mind through this whole process and it made it easier for us because of his frame of mind.

But McVeighs frame of mind may be changing somewhat. For the first time since the bombing, McVeigh is now admitting some remorse for murdering 168 people. In letters to his hometown newspaper in Buffalo, New York -- McVeigh says quote -- I am sorry these people had to lose their lives but thats the nature of the beast. But McVeigh remains defiant saying he has no fear of his impending execution, claiming quote If Im going to hell Im going to have a lot of company.

Meantime, protesters have already gathered to pray for McVeigh outside prison walls.
