Governor Kate Brown Orders Flags Lowered to Half-Staff in Remembrance of Sept. 11, 2001
(Salem, OR) — Governor Kate Brown ordered flags at all public institutions throughout Oregon to be flown at half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Friday, September 11 for Patriot Day. Over 3,000 human beings lost their lives, 25,000 injured, when Middle Eastern terrorists commandeered two airliners and flew them into the World Trade Center. Another airliner with terrorists in the cockpit flew their hijacked plane into the ground at Somerset, Pennsylvania when they realized they couldn’t make it to Washington DC and crash the plane into the White House. No survivors.
