April 19, 1995

We will never forget where we were and what we were doing on the morning of April 19, 1995.  Oklahoma families were forever changed with loved ones lost.  But in the midst of tragedy...  kindness, service, sacrifice, generosity, grace, healing and love took place.

It's come to be known as the Oklahoma Standard, and it proves true over and over and over again.

Today, I've never been more proud or thankful to be a native Oklahoman. Over the past 20 years, the world has watched Oklahomans rise up, work together and grow stronger in the midst of such heartbreak and adversity.  

May God continue to bless and care for the families of those lost that day.  Each one was special and will not be forgotten.

  1. Such heartbreak and devastation ~ and so needless. A friend of mine worked there with a rescue dog for several weeks. They also spent 28 days at Ground Zero after 9/11. He said he, along with others, had PTSD. I don't doubt that anyone would. God bless OK!

  2. Just a few short days ago Virginia Tech also held a memorial on the anniversary of the devastating shootings that claimed the lives of 32 heroes. We will never forget, but instead offer our prayers and love for all those affected.

    Wow Jennifer it's hard to believe that was 20 years ago. I remember it like it was yesterday, glued to the news. Isn't it amazing what comes out of terrible tragedies like that? I have seen it in my own city, people going above and beyond to help others and support each other in the worst of times. Thinking of your fair state as you all remember that sad time of loss.
