May we never forget that fateful day 12 years ago. Let us remember those who lost their lives at The World Trade Centers, The Pentagon and in that Pennsylvania field. Let us also remember the selfless and valiant efforts of the first responders. They shall always be in our minds and in our hearts.
GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!
The World Trade Centers. September 11, 2001.
The Pentagon. September 11, 2001.
Flight 93 Stonycreek Township, Pennsylvania. September 11, 2001.
Let us never forget the brave men who sacrificed all to ensure, not only our freedom, but the freedom of mankind. To those warriors, surrender was not an option, they would accept nothing less than full victory! They gave their last full measure of devotion to the cause of freedom. Let us always continue their fight for freedom, lest their sacrifices be in vain. May we always remember and honor them.
Governor Perry has issued the following directive:
The State of Texas has lost a valued elected official with the brutal murder of District Attorney Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia. As a mark of respect for this brave public servant and his wife, it is fitting that flags in Texas be lowered to half-staff.
Therefore, pursuant to Chapter 3100 of the Texas Government Code and Title 4 of United States Code, as Chief Executive Officer and Governor of the State of Texas, I do hereby direct the lowering of all State of Texas and United States flags under the control of the state to half-staff in memory of the Honorable Mike McLelland and his wife Cynthia, on Thursday, April 4, 2013. Flags should be returned to full staff on Friday, April 5.
Our prayers of comfort are extended to the McLelland family in their time of grief, and I urge all Texans to remember and honor Mike and Cynthia’s service to the State of Texas.
