US Flag at Half Staff for Victims of Binghamton Tragedy - Wednesday, 4/8/09


Gov. David Paterson has ordered that flags on all state government buildings be flown at half-staff Wednesday in honor of the victims of the tragedy at the American Civic Association in Binghamton last Friday.

“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I wish to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the families, loved ones and friends of the victims of this terrible tragedy,” Paterson said in a statement. “While we may never understand this senseless act of violence, our arms and our hearts must be opened to comfort those whose lives were forever changed.”
