DFW Federal Colleagues and friends,

Tomorrow Sunday marks the 25th Anniversary of the Oklahoma City Bombing. On this anniversary, we are reminded that the choice of Public Service extracts a cost from all of us who serve. Even for those who were not in Oklahoma on April 19, 1995, we all must sit with the knowledge that there are those who would do us, those we love, and those we serve harm because we have chosen this vocation. Now we, the federal community along with our state and local partners, find ourselves in another crisis, battling an invisible foe and working tirelessly (and often in harms way) to provide for the health and welfare of our colleagues, communities, and families.

We invite you all to take a moment and reflect on our own past, and the 168 people (including 19 children) who lost their lives 25 years ago. The threads of Oklahoma City run through the work we do today, informing the steps we take to protect one another, and the national landscape around us.

The appreciation we have for these individuals will not end when these 5 minutes conclude, but please join your fellow Fort Worth and Dallas neighbors and step outside at 7 pm TONIGHT for five minutes of applause, recognition and thanks for the many individuals who are selflessly and tirelessly serving the DFW metroplex on the front lines during the COVID-19 crisis.FORT WORTH – Mayor Betsy Price joins Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson in hosting a citywide ovation for front line workers battling the COVID-19 pandemic on Thursday night at 7 p.m. Together the two cities hope to inspire a metroplex-wide recognition of our community heroes.

Mayor Price encourages all Fort Worth residents to step outside at 7 p.m. for five minutes of applauding, cheering, and thanking the individuals who are selflessly serving our community during this crisis. Furthermore, in an effort to brighten residents’ spirits, Mayor Price is lighting the City of Fort Worth "blue" Thursday night to show gratitude for our first responders and healthcare workers working around the clock to protect our community. Downtown buildings and bridges will be illuminated in blue lights as a visual way to unite behind our front-line workers. Residents are encouraged to turn their porch lights on and, if possible, businesses are encouraged to illuminate their building with blue lights.

While this gesture will only last five minutes on Thursday night the appreciation and respect cities across the metroplex have for our front-line workers will not end when the applauds stop. Mayor Price, alongside FWFD Chief Jim Davis, FWPD Chief Ed Kraus and City Manager David Cooke will visit Fort Worth hospitals for an ovation starting at 7:00 p.m.
