Governor Perdue order flags flown at half staff

ATLANTA - Governor Sonny Perdue ordered flags at all state buildings and grounds to fly at half-staff Friday until sunset in remembrance of the victims of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.

"The eighth anniversary of the attacks against America remind us of a time when our nation came together in the face of tragedy," Governor Perdue said. "An attack meant to weaken us only served to make us stronger.

The courage shown by Americans, from ground zero to every corner of our country, continues to inspire us as we vow to never forget those that lost their lives on that day."
