Oklahoma Standard

What is the Oklahoma Standard? 

Out of Tragedy, Courage

April 19, 1995, altered the face of Oklahoma – and the nation – forever. Despite this unspeakable tragedy, among the most lasting memories are the tenderness of the response. The people of Oklahoma banded together in a community-wide display of spontaneous altruism. Cars became ambulances. Strangers became neighbors. People literally donated the shoes off their feet. That spirit of generosity – of giving until there’s no more to give – has been part of the city’s DNA ever since it was founded. Visiting rescue workers and journalists called it the “Oklahoma Standard.”
