A University of Oklahoma student organization is organizing a significant event in Oklahoma City. The Holocaust Remembrance and Restitution Foundation, Inc., lead by Eric Sundby, is co-sponsoring a multi-cultural and multi-religious candlelight vigil and memorial service to honor the victims of the terrorist attacks in Paris.
The event will be Tuesday, November 17th, 2015 starting at 1:30 pm at the Oklahoma City National Memorial Survivor Tree.
I will be participating at the memorial representing my colleagues in the Oklahoma House of Representatives. There will be other Representatives in attendance as well. Also, as an elected Representative of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, I will be representing Native Americans. There is a great and long history between France and the Potawatomi Indians of North America.
France is America’s oldest alley, and as victims of terrorism ourselves, we Oklahomans want to demonstrate our solidarity with the citizens of France. And they are in our prayers.
