AROUND ARKANSAS -- Folks from around the Natural State and around the country are remembering the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing.

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. Family and friends in attendance read the names of those killed.

"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."

Until September 11, 2001, the Oklahoma City bombing was the worst terrorist attack to take place on U.S. soil.
