JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- U.S. and Missouri flags are lowered across Missouri today, at the order of Gov. Nixon, in honor of the victims of the attacks of September 11, 2001.

In a news release, the governor said United States and Missouri flags at all government buildings statewide will be flown at half-staff to honor those who died in the terrorist attacks in New York, the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

"September 11 has become a day both of remembrance and resolve for all Americans," Gov. Jay Nixon said in the release. "We honor those who lost their lives on that day, and we renew our support for those in uniform who protect us, whether they are in the military, in law enforcement, or in emergency response."
