Congressman Russell Statement on 22nd Anniversary of Oklahoma City Bombing

April 19, 2017
Press Release

Congressman Steve Russell (OK-5) released the following statement on the 22nd anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing:

“Twenty-two years ago today, Oklahomans, and Americans alike, suffered a horrible attack of domestic terrorism. But in as much as it opened our eyes to the evils of the world, it also showed us awe-inspiring heroism and a sense of community as the people of Oklahoma City came together to help one another in their greatest hour of need. We should all take a moment today to reflect on the victims, pray for those we lost and those who suffered as well as their families who carried on with this difficult life-changing event. Let us forever remain vigilant as we protect our homeland, and let us always be there for our fellow man, as Oklahomans were, should such a tragedy fall upon us again.”
