(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) On Sunday at 9 a.m., the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum honored 168 family members, survivors and first responders killed in the terrorist attack at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in 1995. Due to social distancing efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s tribute was held virtually. The event included in 168 seconds of silence “to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever.” Guest speakers included Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry, Senator James Lankford, Governor Kevin Stitt, and Mayor David Holt. Kristin Chenoweth closed out the hour-long program with a tribute to educating the next generation.
“While this year’s Anniversary is unique, and we aren’t physically together, we hope by watching this ceremony you feel a sense of unity, still 25 years later,” organizers said.
