Oklahoma City, OK – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) released the following statement on the 27thanniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma:

“Twenty-seven years ago, in a moment fueled by hatred, our state and our country were scarred by a violent tragedy. Every year, on the 19th of April, Oklahomans pause to remember the 168 innocent Oklahomans who lost their lives, those who survived, and those whose lives were forever changed. As we pause today to reflect on the loss so many Oklahomans endured that horrific day, our state also honors the heroic actions that arose from first responders and Oklahomans- as well as the spirit of community and kindness we now know as the Oklahoma Standard. Today, like every April 19th since 1995, I pray for the children, mothers, fathers, and neighbors who are no longer with us- may their memory continue to help us strive for a future full of hope, kindness, and strength.”
