Governor Mary Fallin today released the following statement on the 16th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing:
“Sixteen years ago, 168 victims tragically lost their lives in an unimaginable and shocking act of terrorism. Today, we remember the fallen, give comfort to the families left behind and to the survivors. We also again express our appreciation for the rescue workers and first responders who spent countless hours at the scene.
“In the days and weeks after the bombing, the world saw on display our resilient nature as we comforted one another and began the difficult healing process. That community spirit, known as the ‘Oklahoma Standard,’ continues to showcase the generosity, resiliency and loving nature of our citizens even during the most difficult of times.”
