Flags to be Flown at Half-Staff

By Lindsay Wochnick 0 Comments

American Flag, half staff

Portland Mayor Charlie Hales today issued all flags at all municipal buildings to be flown at half-staff, following Monday’s tragedy in Boston.

“Sorrow is everyone’s first reaction to such a horrible event,” Hales said. “But sorrow also is mixed with admiration for Boston’s first responders, for the hospital staffs, and for the residents of Boston, participants in the marathon, and for onlookers, who reacted with speed and courage. People in Boston showed us the best of humanity this week, and let that be the message we take away from this tragedy.”
