Oklahoma City National Memorial in Pictures

The Oklahoma City Memorial tells the story of April 19th, 1995, and the aftermath of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Building in downtown Oklahoma City. One hundred sixty-eight souls were lost that day, and it’s a tragedy that is still raw for many of us who witnessed it. Fortunately, the citizens of Oklahoma and the world rallied, drew on the strength of each other, and put the pieces of their lives back together as best as they could.
