Governor asks for flags flown at half-staff in observance of anniversary of 9/11 attacks


BISMARCK, North Dakota — North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple is asking that flags are flown at half-staff Friday in observance of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

Nearly a decade and a half after hijacked planes hit the World Trade Center's twin towers, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania, the anniversary continues to be marked with observances around the country.

Dalrymple is asking all state governmental agencies to lower the U.S. and state flags from sunrise to sunset in honor of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. He says the gesture is to extend thoughts and prayers to victims' families and honor the men and women who risked and sacrificed their lives so others might survive.
