Bombing Victims Honored

4-19-05 - OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) Children who lost parents in the Oklahoma City bombing today read the names of the 168 killed on the tenth anniversary of the bombing.

Some 16-hundred people gathered for a ceremony in a church that served as a temporary morgue after the bombing.

The ceremony opened with 168 seconds of silence at 9:02 a.m., the moment the truck bomb delivered by Timothy McVeigh exploded outside the Alfred P- Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.

Four children who were in the building's day-care center when the bomb exploded read the creed of the Oklahoma City National Memorial. P-J Allen, Christopher Nguyen and Brandon and Rebecca Denny recited the creed "May all who leave here know the impact of violence. May this memorial offer comfort, strength, peace, hope and serenity."
