Lankford: The Oklahoma Standard Lives On

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today released a statement ahead of tomorrow’s anniversary of the tragic Oklahoma City bombing that claimed the lives of 168 people, including 19 children:

“Every year, Cindy and I join our state and nation in praying for the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and their families. Nothing can ever take the place of a family member who is no longer at the dinner table—which the chairs at the Oklahoma City National Memorial and Museum solemnly remind us. As Oklahomans, we have not let this evil define us but continue to overcome evil with good. Out of the tragedy that claimed 168 lives, the Oklahoma Standard—always jumping in to give whatever help is needed—was born. And the Oklahoma Standard lives on. Let’s continue to honor the memory of those we lost and those whose lives were changed forever by continuing to do good for our families, communities, state, and nation.”
