Lower the Flag in Honor of Boston Marathon Bombing Victims

Massachusetts-statehouse-half-mast-flagAs I drive around the city I’m seeing lots of flags that remain at full staff.

Please share this post or let people know who own flags that the Massachusetts Governor Patrick has declared that all flags at least in our state be lowered to half mast.

After the April 15th bombing at the Boston Marathon I can’t help but feel it bring back a lot of feeling about the effects of Sept 11th, my friend Ray Rocha who died in the World trade center and eventually capturing Osama Bin Laden last year.

Please Lower your flags to half mast in respect of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Please be advised that Governor Deval L. Patrick and Police Chief Ed Davis has ordered that the United States flag and the Commonwealth flag be lowered to half-staff at all state buildings immediately and until further notice in honor of the victims of the acts of violence perpetrated in Boston on Monday, April 15, 2013.

This gubernatorial order applies to:

1. The main or administration building of each public institution of the Commonwealth, e.g. town and city halls

2. Other state-owned or state-controlled buildings

3. All state military installations
