Anniversary of Oklahoma City Bombing Observed

It was a day to look back, both to 18 years ago and Monday.

About 1,000 people gathered Friday at the First United Methodist Church, for the 18th Anniversary Remembrance Ceremony of the April 19, 1995, bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.

As they gathered to remember and honor the 168 people who died as a result of that attack, they were reminded of the importance of response in years since and that of the future, which was re-emphasized Monday with the bombings at the Boston Marathon.
