Flags At Half-Staff To Honor Shooting Victims
Written by wendycorr on August 5, 2019
The country is mourning the loss of 29 people, with dozens injured, after two mass shootings over the weekend in Texas and Ohio.
In response to the tragedy, Governor Mark Gordon has ordered both the U.S. and State of Wyoming flags be flown at half-staff statewide until sunset on Thursday, August 8 to honor the victims in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas.
The declaration comes after a Presidential decree ordering that flags around the country be lowered in honor of the victims, who died after acts of violence on August 3rd and 4th.
