Our state will pause to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever on the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing this weekend.

Oklahomans will never forget the day 19 years ago, April 19, 1995.

Before the anniversary is marked Saturday, volunteers are preparing their own tribute Friday.

Oklahoma Christian University students and staff are posting 168 Oklahoma and U.S. flags on the school’s front lawn.

The “Ralph and Maxine Harvey Field of Flags” is a dual tribute to those affected by the bombing of the Murrah federal building 19 years ago and to those in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.

Oklahoma Christian is also one of the only sites in the world to have Survivor Trees grown from seeds from the Survivor Tree at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.

Family, friends and fellow Oklahomans will gather at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum downtown to mark the 19th remembrance ceremony.

There will be 168 seconds of silence to remember those lost in the bombing at 9:02 a.m.

Friends and family will read the names of those lost and Governor Mary Fallin will also be part of the anniversary.

You can watch the ceremony live on NewsChannel 4 starting at 8 a.m. Saturday.

The remembrance ceremony begins at 8:55 a.m.
