It’s a day Oklahoma City will never forget.

Twenty-five years ago today, on April 19, 1995, our worlds were rocked when a truck bomb went off outside the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City.

One hundred sixty-eight people died that day.

For the Oklahoma City Thunder, the organization takes the time to honor those who lost their lives.

Last year, the organization presented families of those who died custom city-edition jerseys.

They then wore the jerseys when they played the Houston Rockets back in January.

As a part of every orientation, every player must tour the Memorial and Museum.

This day means a lot to the organization.

On Sunday, the Thunder tweeted a photo of the Oklahoma City National Memorial.

The Thunder organized to also honor first responders who helped victims in the domestic terrorist attack during a game against the New York Knicks on March 6.
