Kasich Asks Ohioans To Remember 9/11< < Back to
Flags will be flown at half-staff at Ohio's public buildings and grounds to commemorate the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Gov. John Kasich has ordered that the flags be flown at half-staff on Tuesday from sunrise to sunset.
He also asked that Ohioans observe a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., marking when the north tower at the World Trade Center site in New York was struck by a plane.
Last week, volunteers planted thousands of American flags in the Statehouse lawn to commemorate the lives lost during the attacks on the World Trade Center, as well as the Pentagon.
The display will remain on the lawn until Sept. 12.
In Columbus, Mayor Michael Coleman planned to host a lunchtime remembrance ceremony with veterans at City Hall to honor those who died in the attacks and the emergency responders.
