Oklahoma Senate leader statement on 25th anniversary of OKC bombing

Oklahoma Senate President Pro Tempore Greg Treat, R-Oklahoma City, released the following statement on the 25th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing:

“The bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City changed our state and nation forever. We will always remember the 168 lives lost and honor the survivors from that terrible day 25 years ago. Out of that tragedy, though, the world learned of the Oklahoma Standard. It was our faith, our resilience and our willingness to lift each other up that helped us overcome and rebuild after the bombing."

"That same spirit of the Oklahoma Standard will carry our state forward now through the current difficult times. To the families who lost loved ones and to the survivors, know that we remember and we support you. I hope that all Oklahomans will join my family and I in remembering and praying for all those affected by the bombing, and praying for our state and our nation.”
