In a recent interview with Good Morning America, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin asked for prayer and expressed optimism over the state’s recovery from recent tornadoes.

”Will we be back? Absolutely,” Fallin said in the interview. “Oklahoma has gone through this a couple times, and we’re resilient, strong, courageous people.”

After discussing the pain that the state of Oklahoma experienced during the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings, Fallin said that her state will rebound once again from a terrible tragedy.

“You know, you probably remember the [Oklahoma City bombing in 1995], which I was in office back then [as lieutenant governor], we went through a tremendous tragedy and loss of life at that time,” she said.

“Oklahoma City has rebounded. It has rebuilt,” she proclaimed.

“Oklahoma people are very strong, and they will make it through this, but we’re going to need a lot of prayer and a lot of support to get back on our feet.”

At a Tuesday press conference, the Republican governor continued to express her hopeful attitude:

“We will rebuild, and we will regain our strength.”
