Today is the 16th Anniversary of Oklahoma City Bombing

Today marks the 16th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing, an act of domestic terrorism that killed 168 people.

A memorial was erected in Oklahoma’s capital city  in their honor. In late 2009, 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels traveled to that memorial and museum, reviewing the design and discussing lessons learned from creating a memorial museum. In less than six months, the 9/11 Memorial will open.  

During his trip, Daniels and Kari Watkins, the executive director of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, discussed commonalities shared in the missions and goals of  her organization and the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. Both charities have worked together for the past three years. Both are united by hope.
