Flags Half-Staff for 9/11 remembrance
PLATTSBURGH — Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has ordered flags on state government buildings to be flown at half-staff today in in remembrance of the nearly 3,000 men, women and children who lost their lives in the 2001 terrorist attacks on Sept. 11.
"On September 11, 2001, New York suffered the deadliest terror attack this nation has ever seen. But this horrific tragedy did not tear us apart; instead our state and the entire country united and emerged from our darkest hour as one in the name of freedom and democracy," the governor said in a news release.
"We saw the best and the worst in humanity in that moment, and we will never forget those who lost their lives, including the selfless heroes who ran toward danger to help others. On behalf of the New York family, we honor the memories of these men and women, and we are eternally grateful for their sacrifice."
