Spokane mayor orders flags at half staff in memory of 9/11

Today is the 18th anniversary of the American national tragedy, 9/11. In honor of the victims of the attack, Spokane Mayor David Condon has asked that all flags at city facilities be lowered to half-staff.

“Today marks the 18-year anniversary of 9/11,” said Condon. “It is our duty as a nation, as a state, and as a community to honor the victims and heroic emergency responders from that tragic day. Together, we will never forget.”

Spokane residents are encouraged to join in the recognition of the fallen victims and the brave emergency responders that were a part of the day that changed America forever.

Flags should remain at half-staff until the end of the business day or sunset this evening.
