Thursday marked the 23rd anniversary of the bombing at the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.  

The memorial ceremony to honor the 168 people killed as a result of the bombing was held at the Oklahoma City National Memorial grounds. Video from the ceremony is embedded at the bottom of the page.

Remarks were made by the newly sworn in Oklahoma City mayor, David Holt, and Gov. Mary Fallin. 

The Rev. Billy Graham was honored during this year's remembrance ceremony by former Gov. Frank Keating. Graham died earlier this year at the age of 99. Graham came to Oklahoma City several times during his lifetime, including when he spoke at a memorial service held days after of the Oklahoma City bombing.
