All flags lowered to honor victims of weekends mass shootings

President Donald J. Trump has ordered the United States Flag to be flown at half-staff effective immediately until sunset on Thursday, August 8, 2019.  

This is done as a mark of solemn respect for the victims of the terrible acts of violence perpetrated on August 3, 2019, in El Paso, Texas and August 4, 2019, in Dayton, Ohio. 

As a matter of protocol, the Maryland flag is lowered to half-staff. No flag may be higher than the United States flag.
