Gov. Mary Fallin is honoring the victims and survivors on the 18th anniversary of the bombing at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
Fallin is among those attending a ceremony marking the anniversary of the April 19, 1995, attack that killed 168 people.
Fallin says the anniversary is a day to remember those killed and injured and also to honor the emergency responders, firefighters and police who worked at the scene. She says the state's response to the tragedy would later become known as the “Oklahoma standard.”
The governor also honored the victims of Monday's bombing at the Boston Marathon. She says Oklahomans understand the pain that those are feeling in Boston, and that residents continue to offer their prayers.
