Lowering of US and NC State Flags on Sept. 11

Gov. Pat McCrory has ordered all United States and North Carolina flags to be lowered to half-staff on all state facilities from sunrise to sunset on Thursday, Sept. 11, in recognition of Patriot Day.

"Thirteen years ago, our nation was attacked and life as we knew it changed forever," Governor McCrory said. "On this anniversary, we unite in remembrance and prayer for our nation, those innocent lives lost and their families who must still cope with this tragedy."‚Äč
