Topeka, KS– In accordance with Executive Order #20-30, Governor Laura Kelly ordered flags throughout the State of Kansas to be flown at half-staff on all state buildings, grounds, and facilities from sunup to sunset on Sunday, September 11, 2022, in honor of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001.
“Today we honor our fellow Americans who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attacks 21 years ago. They should be in all our hearts today,” Governor Laura Kelly said. “We also remember that our country’s brave first responders went above and beyond the call of duty to save lives – even as they lost more than 400 of their own. They did that 21 years ago, and they continue to do so to this day.”
