COPY-Giuliani calls Oklahoma City a model of "compassion and strength"

OKLAHOMA CITY-- Former New York mayor and current Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani spoke often of this week's massacre at Virginia Tech at today's 12th anniversary ceremony of the Oklahoma City bombing.

Giuliani says Americans must confront the fact that evil exists and that Oklahoma City came face to face with the evil of terrorism 12 years ago.  He says the city became a model of compassion and strength that helped New York following the 911 terror attacks and will help Virginia Tech in the wake of this week's shooting that left more than 30 dead.

Giuliani says Oklahoma City turned anger into compassion then turned the compassion into action in order to recover from the bombing.

He says America must realize terrorism still exists and that the danger must continually be confronted.  And Giuliani says Americans must strive to never forget and to do everything possible to prevent attacks from happening again.
