Student and staff volunteers at Oklahoma Christian University have posted 168 U.S. flags and 168 Oklahoma flags on the front lawn of the campus to honor victims of terrorist attacks.

The “Ralph and Maxine Harvey Field of Flags” at Oklahoma Christian is a dual tribute to the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and the April 19, 1995, Oklahoma City bombing, in which 168 people died.

Members of the Oklahoma Christian community also gathered early Wednesday at survivor trees from the World Trade Center site in New York City and the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. The campus is the only site in the world outside of New York City to have survivor trees from the Oklahoma City federal building and the World Trade Center side by side.
