OKLAHOMA CITY – Tuesday morning, people across the state and country will take time to remember the 168 lives that were lost 21 years ago.
On April 19, 1995, a bomb exploded outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, destroying much of the nine-story structure.
While the scars have healed since that day, the memories are still fresh in the minds of so many.
“We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity,” – Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum.
Many took to social media to remember that tragic day and the lives we lost.
"My fellow Americans, a tree takes a long time to grow, and wounds take a long time to heal. But we must begin. Those who are lost now belong to God. Some day we will be with them. But until that happens, their legacy must be our lives." ~ President Bill Clinton, April 23, 1995 #oklahomastandard #OKStandard
