COPY-Oklahoma City bombing remembered on 19th anniversary

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR/CNN) - Oklahomans are remembering the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing today.

The blast killed 168 people at a federal building 19 years ago.

Oklahoma governor Mary Fallin spoke at an event to remember those who died on April 19, 1995.

"This attack could have easily crippled our city. It could have easily crippled our state. It could have left our people hopeless, but it did not. Instead, the people of Oklahoma banded together. With the help of our volunteers and well-wishers, not only from across our state but across our nation, and even from around the world, they helped us overcome. We worked together, we comforted one another, we rebuilt. And today we are a more prosperous city and a stronger state," Fallin said.

Family and friends read the names of those killed.
