April 19, 2012
Governor Mary Fallin and Mayor Mick Cornett joined this year’s Remembrance Ceremony that was emceed by Memorial Foundation Chairman Gary Pierson. Similar to previous years, 168 seconds of silence were observed at 9:02 a.m., reflecting the moment the nation was changed forever. The ceremony began with a bagpipe procession of the ceremony participants, led by Pipe Sergeant Kevin M. Donnelly of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Black and Gold Pipes and Drums. The Edmond North High School Orchestra played from the Plaza overlooking the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial, and Charity Logan performed a special song just before the reading of the 168 names.
Roses were placed on each chair in the Field of Empty Chairs today to honor those who were lost special thanks to Teleflora and New Leaf Floral. Museum visitors were able to take a Survivor Tree seedling with them, thanks to the Oklahoma State Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry.
The Memorial Museum is FREE today thanks to Cox Community Day! Cox Community Day aims to ensure all are able to learn the lessons of the Oklahoma City bombing, and we encourage all to join us during this day of remembrance.
