Half-mast for our heroes

Today, flags at the United States Capitol were lowered to half-mast to honor federal, state, and local law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty.

“This is a day to serve those who serve us,” said Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH). “Let us all take time to remember the fallen, reflect on the sacrifices their families have made, and give thanks or the men and women who put themselves in harm’s way every day.”
