Flags at half-staff today to honor Patriot Day

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty has ordered all U.S. and Minnesota flags be flown at half-staff on state property from sunrise until sunset today in honor of Patriot Day.

The governor also encourages all Minnesotans to display the flag at half-staff from their homes and asks that the people of Minnesota and places of worship mark today with moments of silence, memorial services, the ringing of bells and candlelight vigils to honor those who protect and defend our way of life and to reaffirm our resolve to eradicate the threat of terrorism at home and abroad.
