April 19, 2018
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) spoke on the Senate floor today about the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing.
I'd like to remind people this is April 19 and this is the anniversary of what could be characterized as the greatest domestic terrorist attack in history. It was in our state of Oklahoma at the Alfred P. Murrah Building office building.
One hundred and sixty-eight people were killed, many of those were very close personal friends of mine. Eight hundred and fifty others were wounded and I remember so well being there at the time.
Second Corinthians reminds us to not lose heart in times of struggle and tragedy. Instead, through our inherent strength and selflessness, Oklahomans united together to support our neighbors and rebuild our city—the Oklahoma Standard.
Today we remember the victims, thank first responders, and continue to pray for Oklahoma and the families and friends who have lost loved ones.
