Why is the Flag Flying at Half-Staff Today?


GOVERNOR CUOMO DIRECTS FLAGS TO HALF-STAFF

GOVERNOR CUOMO ANNOUNCES FLAGS AT HALF STAFF TO COMMEMORATE 9/11 ANNIVERSARY



Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that flags on state government buildings will be flown at half-staff on Sunday, September 11 in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 men, women and children who lost their lives in the 2001 terrorist attacks.

"Fifteen years after the devastating and senseless terrorist attacks that shook New York and the nation to its core, we remember those lives lost on September 11, 2001. Today, and every day since these horrific attacks, we remember those who were taken from us too soon, and honor the brave first responders who in our darkest hour put their lives on the line to save their neighbors and their fellow New Yorkers."

"As we honor the memory of nearly 3,000 individuals taken from us on that tragic day, let us not forget the members of the U.S. Armed Forces who continue to fight for our safety and our freedom protecting our family, friends and neighbors, both in the U.S. and across the globe."
