As I was driving to work this morning, I caught a glimpse of Oklahoma Christian University‘s tribute to September 11th, 2001.

Apparently, this tribute is held twice a year: on the anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing and the anniversary of September 11th.

My sister even called me today from Afghanistan and asked how I was remembering September 11th. I told her I watched a few tribute shows yesterday and that I would stop by the Oklahoma Christian University tribute after work.

Here are a few more pictures of the tribute. Each of the 168 U.S. and Oklahoma flags represent a victim of the Oklahoma City bombing attack, while also serving as a reminder of the September 11th attacks where terrorism struck hard in the 21st century.
