Lowering of U.S. and N.C. flags from August 7-10 in tribute to victims of Wisconsin shooting

From the Office of the Governor:

Gov. Bev Perdue today ordered the United States and North Carolina flags to be lowered to half-staff on all state facilities from Tuesday, August 7, through sunset August 10 in tribute to the victims of the shooting in Oak Creek, Wisconsin. Citizens and local governments are encouraged to fly flags at half-staff as well.

“This tragic loss underscores the importance of respect for all faiths and beliefs, a unique foundation of our nation that has made us so strong,” Gov. Perdue said.
