We can all remember exactly where we were the morning our city was shaken to its core. At 9:02, the morning of April 19th, 1995 two men carried out a ruthless attack on our beloved city. An act of terror that would forever change our way of life.
But today Oklahoma City is stronger than ever. Out of the ashes of that terrible tragedy, our city has remade herself. Our people are strong. Our city is thriving. And the world has taken note of the “Oklahoma Standard”
At BC Clark Jewelers we like to say that we are “From the Heart of Oklahoma”. But on days like today, as we remember the 168 lives that were lost, this simple phrase takes on a whole new meaning. To say that we are “From the Heart of Oklahoma” means that we stand with our city, its people, and its unwavering commitment to excellence.
We are proud to be witness to the unbreakable downtown business community that stood strong in the face of uncertain times. And we count ourselves blessed beyond measure that we have been able to be a part of such an amazing renaissance for our city.
To the people of Oklahoma, to first responders that made us so proud to be Okies, and to the families that lost loved ones on this terrible day…
…today we say that YOU are The Heart of Oklahoma.
We come here to remember those who were killed, those who survived and those changed forever. May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity.®
