“We will never forget” Oklahomans gather to remember 19 years after bombing

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.

UPDATE: State Superintendent Barresi responds to “no confidence” petition

UPDATE: Janet Barresi’s campaign is responding to the “no confidence” petition.

The campaign released the following statement:

“The fact that those guarding their own kingdoms are against the state’s leading reform advocate is not a surprise. This same group literally turned their backs on Janet when she first went to speak to them before the 2010 elections.  

These are the same people who opposed Janet in 2010, who constituted the 18% who supported SQ 744 in 2010, who have sued parents for seeking opportunities for their special needs children and who have controlled education in Oklahoma for all but the last three years.

Local university to honor OKC bombing anniversary with flags

EDMOND, Okla. – Oklahomans are gathering together to mark the 19th anniversary of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building bombing.

At 6:00 a.m. on Friday, April 18, student and staff volunteers will post 168 Oklahoma flags and 168 U.S. flags on the front lawn of the Oklahoma Christian University (OC) campus at 2501 East Memorial Road.

The “Ralph and Maxine Harvey Field of Flags” at Oklahoma Christian is a dual tribute to the victims of the Murrah Federal Building bombing on April 19, 1995, and the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.

The hope is that each person who sees the memorial tribute will take a moment to remember the 168 lives lost on that dreadful day.
